One of my few disappointments on the EM5 was the continuous focus & button sizes, well, the EM1 certainly fixed the button sizes, so have now tested the continuous focus at the track & I'm happy with the results

nice action, of a fun event, which track meet was this?

I agree, the CAF on the EM-1 is working well for me with this and at the Thruxton Circuit Race track meet recently

Would love to know the camera settings.

Thanks - also which lens were you using.

Is it Zenfolio that strips the metadata or is it a conscious choice on your part?

I think it is Zenfolio as my LR5 is set to allow metadata so my copywrite is included.
I did think it was my Panny 35-100mm but checking it is the Oly 40-150mm kit lens. I have been having some excellent results with is lens, although a plastic body the images are good & the contrast is better than the panny 45-200mm

Peter, a Review posted in the last few days (BIOFOS) said "great things are achieved with the 40-150"

Andym posted this in "A proper review"

Thanks for posting these Peter But I have to agree with Ian what no exif data:mad:. Without this data any pictures taken for display on this forum detracts from the likes of those trying to assess a new cameras performance.

So please can we have exif data it will save so much asking of questions of what setting were used to take these pictures.

Having said all that they look really great pics capturing the essence of speed in that sport.

I did post the data latter. Still trying to find out why Zenfolio has stripped the data.
