Micro 4/3s and moving subjects have I got this right?
Sep 6, 2012

Please correct anything that is wrong

Mico 4/3s such as the EM-5 seem to be making giant steps forward

The one thing that stops them meeting mine and lots of other peoples needs is they aren’t quite there on moving subjects.

Reading the G5 reviews this failure is down to its poor CAF

I never use the CAF on my E620 because to be blunt it doesn’t work

I take lots of BIFs with my E620 and I think with some degree of success.

I use my 70-300 and my 40-150. The former especially misses more shots than it takes because of hunting issues

An EVF camera means lag although this seems to be improving all the time.

Both the EM-5 and the G5 boast about their AF speed

Having played with a G5 the AF speed does seem very very good.

The problem with EVF lag is probably compensated for by much improved AF speeds

Given that the E620 and 70-300 has its problems when taking BIFs and for that matter so do lots of my Canikon friends who still suffer hunting issues with some expensive kit

And.

Given that my existing cameras aren’t exactly the greatest platform for BIFs

it’s reasonable to say that while a G5 is not the ideal solution for a bif shooter, coupled with the 100-300, it is no worse than a e620 and 70-300
