I want to replace E500 which I used for birds and sports. Had considered getting E-M1 with adapter and using old 70-300 lens but E-M10 with new 75-300 batteries and cards would be cheaper. I was disappointed in missing fast birds in flight and focussing on birds against the sky. Will this combination be an improvement over E500? Would E-M1 be fast focusing than E-M10 with 75-300mm? I look forward to image stabilisation and video. Got 88 thousand shots with E500. Will E-M10 be able to handle a lot of shooting. I sometimes needed 3 batteries for a days shooting.
Would I be able to take shots at 400 ISO F5.6 1/640 sec with image stabiliser with shots that I would have had to use 800 or 1600 ISO on E500?
