Has anyone tried doing real-life stuff yet with the Mark II and the monster 4/3 lenses - 90-250 f/2.8 or 300 f/2.8? I'm just wondering if, and by how much, focussing has improved/speeded up over the Mark I.

Thanks in anticipation ... John

I have seen lots of examples elsewhere. People are very happy with the improved C-AF with the old 43 lenses.

I've had a couple of shots with my Bigma on Whooper Swans at 100 metres or so.
Seemed to work quite well but I'll try a few more before I put them up.
