SAF with EM-5, 75-300 hand-held, 4fps from the beach, no pre-focus, just letting the camera get on with the job. The boats are coming toward me at greater than 50mph. Shooting toward the sun with up to +2ev dialled in. Success rate for focus in over 1000 shots was >90% (compositionally an awful lot less, but that was down to the photographer   )

Your DOF at f6-f8 is like a FF DSLR at f12-f16.

The DOF is so big you almost can't miss focus.

You say that, but judging by the focal length, the size of the people in the shots etc I'm guessing at the distance he was shooting and the apeture he had DoF was only a couple of meters.

If the boats were travelling at 50mph as he says that means they'd pass through this range in about 1/10th of a second.
