I keep both eyes open and try to superimpose the small aircraft in my left eye over the large one I see through the viewfinder in my right eye. That helps me keep the subject centred during its pass.

Valuable tip. I can usually do this with the 40-150 and sports, especially when following the ball and not necessarily the players. With the 300 (12X) my brain doesn't do so well accommodating such different magnifications and I generally rely on the finder alone.

As an aside: EVF/OVF isn't especially relevant either, as I used the E-series and similar magnifications before switching to E-M1.

Cheers,

Rick
