Cracking shots, but they're not "In Flight!" :D

Well, there's nothing wrong with the focus in that sequence! Well done and thanks for posting, Andy. *chr

Very nice! I love the first picture of the crow. The 40-150 f/2.8 is outstanding for static shots and probably better than anything else available in m43 for moving subjects. Still challenging for moving subjects but hopefully I will get better!

Andy,
Great shots. Looks like C-AF is working well for you.
I'm delighted with the results from my 40-150 + MC-14. I reckon the image quality with this combo is better than with the ZD 50-200SWD I used to own. A return to reasonable weather would now be very welcome so that I can get more use from this kit.

Excellent shots Andy, I must get out with my 40-150 and MC-14.

Superb shots Andy. So this lens can perform on the E-M1 with CAF in the right hands. I can't wait to try mine out with the MC14 which I picked up today.*chr

Well, in the right hands and with the right subject. Seagulls have a habit of being quite large and often slow. Smaller and faster may be a different story... :)

According to the EXIF the 5 shots were taken in under 2 seconds and over approx 9 metres, so not too slow. I agree that small fast birds would be much harder. The E-M1 C-AF isn't up to DSLR standards yet, but hopefully the next version will finally bridge the gap. I think it's possible to get good C-AF results from this camera, but you need patience and you have to accept a percentage of failures.
