Excellent job! Capturing motion with micro 43 cameras is very difficult - at least with the E-PL1 and GH2 that I have.

I found when use burst mode it took a very, very long time for the GH2 to clear its buffer.

I have an indoor arena nearby which has agility matches several times a year, but the lighting is very poor. I'd never be able to shoot in it with the GH2. No lens I have is fast or long enough.

This past summer I attended Freedom Weekend Aloft in Simpsonville, SC, which features balloon launches if the weather cooperates and disc dog competitions.

This is the only image I was able to capture of a dog catching a disc. I was using the Panasonic 45-200 lens:

I am not sure what the capabilities are of the GH2, but as an aside I recently picked up a Sandisk 45MB/s card as the price has come WAY down ($18 for 16GB)now that the 95MB/s cards are out, and it writes and clears the buffer about 50% faster......... (in a OMD)
