Combo Works for Action
4

I took my new Olympus OM D 5 mk3 and the new 45-150mm F4 lens on a trip mostly to visit family and some tourist pics. I was given the opportunity to shoot a youth soccer game and had no experience using M 4/3 for action pics. Usually, my dslr gear would be the choice. I used this lens at 1/1500 and f5.6 and single AF point with slower burst with continuous AF. I did not try tracking as there is too much player activity in the way and my dslr never had that feature. I was pleasantly surprised that 90% of the pics were sharp. I am almost sure that the soft pics were due to the AF point moving off the target. One less use for my aging dslr gear.
