G6 cuts through the crap
7

One of the issues I run into with bird photography is branches - branches in front of the subject tend to throw off AF, particularly a problem with my old E-P1.

Using the G6 and Pinpoint AF gets surprisingly good results where normally I would have to MF. Focus doesn't seem as fast as when using a normal AF frame, but is still quite quick - just a little hesitant perhaps. Easy and quick to confirm with focus peaking, too.

Sometimes it is worthwhile to concentrate on the things that a camera is good at, rather than waste time considering the things that it isn't; this is one of the things the G6 is good at.
