I went to a presentation on the latest Olympus, it is an impressive piece of kit.

Particularly I thought the starting saving images from the first focusing was a neat trick.

I think you are referring to the Pro-Photo feature where the camera begins saving images to a buffer after gaining focus, but before the shutter is actually released. At that point the final image as well as those in the buffer are written to the card. I have used this but for rodeo and horse jumping, I prefer to just shoot a burst of 15-20. However I have friends that swear by the Pro-Photo feature.

Yes, it is probably that.

I made my choices with my current gear and compared to your equipment I am just not set up for sports or fast action. I am set well for portraits and landscapes, (Nikon D800) although because I like some sports I will make the effort, but fast bursts aren't available for me.

I do ok at some motorsports though, it does acquire focus well. I need to experiment with more modes though to get the most out of it.
