Re: Olympics: BMX mens quarter finals (OM-D, 40-150)

Thanks Oni - I mostly prefocussed and shot high speed continuous to get a series with some hopefully in focus. I was using auto iso and in hindsight should have just set it to 3200 to get the highest speeds (this is week 2 of OM-D ownership for me - still getting used to it)

The IS2 tip is a good one and never crossed my mind at the time.. I like using the panning technique to blur backgrounds, but would this work well for bmx where the riders aren't moving in a straight line?

I like the last one in the series you posted the focus was perfect. One thing, do not be afraid to use higher ISO for better speeds. For tracking left right obviously use IS 2 so you can retain pan speeds but keep vertical sharpness crisp.
