Needing Help w/ OMD E-M1 AF Tracking Tips for Moving Subjects
7 months ago

Hi All,

I have the E-M1 and I'd like to get better results for moving subjects such as kids playing soccer or wildlife. I think the camera can probably do significantly better than I'm seeing now, so I'd appreciate any advice y'all have. I have tried both options for continuous AF (i.e., with and without tracking.) Tracking seems to hunt more, but it seems more sensitive too. Mainly I have tried this with the Olympus 40-150mm F4-5.6, but some with the Olympus 45mm F1.8 too.

Also, I'm not really sure what to expect.  I have recently gotten into m4/3 and have shot only Nikons previously.  I'd also appreacaite any comments on what is realistic to expect with the E-M1, and any suggestions based on your shooting experience regarding what if any lenses would work better from an AF perspective.

Thanks!!

Mark
