Sports and birds in flight with GH2..amazing! EPl5 AF tracking
In reply to Jorginho, Apr 3, 2013

Squash World Championships final. Gh2 with MF lens...You don't need AF for this..;-)

Goose GH2 and 100-300 panny.

Fast bird, heavyly cropped. Not pinsharp ath the edge of the lens. But at least nto just cruising by..

I may add that squash is quite a bit faster than basketball. I know, I have done squash a lot. And those birds are not just seagulls cruising by. They were speedy. But the keeper rate here is 3 out of 10 shots in both cases. May be 4. And it is like this: once it is okey you have 8 out of 10 but the next moment the focus hunts and it is 1 out of 10. Get a DSLR, a good one, and it is easily double that.

I think you are kidding yourself. And no reason to belittle the m43s or the Nikon 1. The 1 is quite a bit better in PDAF than your Sony btw.

Some quite boring shots with EPL5 with CAF tracking...

Yes..with 30-40 km/h it is okey...At 80 km/h it is quite a bit different.
