Advice on Auto-focus? EM-1
6 months ago

I'm using the EM-1 with the 75mm 1.8 in the street, when taking photographs of people coming towards me (as they start to fill the frame) I might get 50/50 hit ratio.

I'm using continuous tracking mode with face detection enabled with nearest eye is. I have center point focus for obtaining a target, and then shooting a few times as that target gets to where I want them.

Shutter Release priority = 50/50

Focus Priority = Struggles to let me take any photos.

I am new to this combo, perhaps other lenses would be faster to react.

Are there any suggestions of how I might improve hit ratio using AF?
