OMD-E5 as an action camera, any experience?


I would love to move away from my D700 and kilos of Nikon glass, even though its truly great gear. I'd love something smaller and cheaper.

I know that Olympus claim that the AF is very fast, however, can anyone point me to some real world experiences on this?

I occasionally shoot night athletics meetings, where the action is fast, and the light poor. (you van see some on my gallery)

I am also interested in experiences with low light AF.

In truth, I can get the OMD camera and almost all the lenses I need for the price of a Nikon 70-200mmf2.8 VR II.

Can anyone help?
