AFC with the G5 + 100-300
Oct 20, 2012

I've posted recently that the G5 + Oly 75-300 has a really good AFC, excellent for birds in flight and for sports. Much better than the GH2 and infinitely better than the nonfunctional AFC in the GH1.   I just tested the Panny 100-300 (which I thought not good enough AFC with the GH2) with the G5 for  its AFC competence.  It's pretty good. The camera no longer wants to fly off into inner space at random moments.  It quickly acquires the subject and follows it well.  I suspect that it's still not as quick as the 75-300 but haven't yet tested them together.  There have been several threads lately about upgrading to the G5.  This is one more good reason to do it.
