Try face-detection next time.

I have... but I find face-detection on rapid acquisition candids with multiple targets a sure-fire way to miss the "decisive moment."  It is mostly useful for me holding the camera at odd (one-handed outstretched) angles with standard-WA lenses, or for telephoto on static staged shots.  Otherwise, even the touch-to-shoot feature on the EM5 gets me a better hit rate.

I think Panasonic's implementation of the face detection seems better.  Even with my GH1, it is right on target, and I was able to track my son running between water columns streaming from the ground.  With the E-PL5 is not always that spots on, and sometimes it detects odd objects (e.g., part of a plant) as face.  Not sure about the EM5 though.
