Re: How much have micro 4/3 cameras improved for action shooting?

Update: I went ahead and bought the E-PL5...it became especially urgent when the card reader broke in my E-PL1 body. I also have a VF-3 viewfinder.

The situations when I had the most frustration shooting action with the E-PL1 were at indoor basketball games (sitting courtside behind the basket) and auto racing from a distance because I didn't have great access.

I remember how effortless it was to shoot sports action with a Nikon D1 way back in 2002 when I worked at a newspaper. (It was a small newspaper, so I was a reporter/photographer.)
