Re: M4/3 reliable sports camera? E-M1 Mkll, say I

I'm VERY happy with my E-M1 Mkll, after the BIG firmware upgrade. C-AF for sports is now way better than any Olympus digicam I have ever owned. 
I mostly use my 40-150 f/2.8 for field sports, with back-button to activate C-AF. It's a solid combination. 15 fps in full res JPEG or RAW is hard to beat. I usually use bursts of 4-5 frames to catch peak of action.

I tried my E-M5 Mkll for sports and the C-AF is very untrustworthy. Very. I can't imagine the Mklll would be much better. The thin whisper of a grip is a turn-off, for me, as well. Give me something to hang onto.

E-M1 Mkll is high in my books!
