Re: GH3 - Who says that m43 is not good for sports !!!

"I think you are confusing the acronym CDAF (contract detection auto focus) with AFC (auto focus continuous).

The GH3 only has a CDAF system regardless of the mode you are using."

that's me - easily confused at my age

Even more strongly then -

if you know your sport you can track it and capture the action - even when using a system with CDAF (it just isn't as easy as it is with a conventional phase-detection based "fix and follow focus" DSLR AF systems)

This isn't theory by the way, I do it a lot, not track and field but high speed water sports, approaching, departing, at 45%, through balls of spray etc and there are plenty of others demonstrating the potential of these CDAF based cameras with action shooting as well
