You never said what sort of action ...

There's a huge difference between shooting say birds-in flight versus volleyball or kid's soccer.

And there is no substitute for correct technique.

I used my E-P3 and now my E-Pl5 for teenage soccer and I agree C-AF is not great but the S-AF is frankly plenty fast enough and with 8 fps burst a lot of action can be caught once you get your technique sorted. Don;t believe that getting a DSLR makes is oh so easy - read some the C and N threads on arguments over how to get tracking AF to work properly, let alone design flaws even with the series 1 top pro gear.

So what are you planing to shoot?
