I do a lot of running photography with my big heavy Canon system and it's great for that.

This weekend I'm going to Budapest as my daughter is running in a big championship.

It would suit me much more to bring my nex-7 with me. I've a newly acquired 50mm f1.8 for it.

Has anyone identified settings which suit this kind of photography with the Nex-7??

With the Canon I can get about 80% of shots in sharp focus..

Olympus EM5 would be a lighter best bet...

The 75mm f/1.8 would work? Don't know what distance you are working with...or the 100-300 Panansonic and EM5...

Nex series not so great at sports, doable, but many OOF shots and slow lens...

EM5 100-300:

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...
