Hoverflight

Following on from my shots of the Dragonflies in flight using the EM-5 + 30-100 f2.8 I had the chance to fire off a few shots of a Hoverfly coming in to land on Japanese Anemone using the EM-1 with 40-150 pro with 1.4xTC, smallest single point, SAF+ M and 9 fps

I was pleased with the speed that it grabbed focus and the way that it held it though about 6 shots as it came in to land.

A couple of examples, the 1st and 4th shots from the sequence

both are large crops down to around 1200 pix on the longest side

Re: Hoverflight

Thanks raymondo, but in this case it really was all down to the camera, all I did was place the focus point on the hoverfly and press the shutter

Brilliant, more pressure to get a 40-150 2.8f .
