Re: Needing Help w/ OMD E-M1 AF Tracking Tips for Moving Subjects

Mark, for the subjects you mentioned I'd shoot with SAF not CAF of any type, as I think you'll have better results.  The af is so fast (especially with the 45mm) you'll have a high keeper rate without the complications of CAF.  I generally use the small single af point as well.

Some do use CAF without tracking and find it improves their results, generally with the 9 point setting.  I use that for BIF and find it helpful.  One last comment is that those using tracking seem to find setting the CAF lock to normal helps as well.

Best,
