Fairly good luck with C-AF + AEL Mode 4

Thanks Roel - interesting that you are positioning yourself mostly perpendicular to the action so that your plane of focus doesn't change much.

As you could tell from my football post, I am shooting mostly "head on", and have had good success with C-AF while using AEL mode 4 (where the AEL button activates/deactivates the focus action).  This way I can release the thumb button and have focus stop at a certain point and take advantage of the full 5 FPS rate.  This is much more important on the E-3 (where the frame rate drops way down during focusing action), than the E-5.

At any rate, thanks for the feedback on your setup.

Good shooting.
