Sounds a bit like my experiences so far with the EM-5 and EM-1

I think I will stick with my use of SAF +MF and "blipping" the shutter button as I manually track the bird through the sky until it reaches my "critical moment", followed by a quick burst at 4fps or 6fps respectively to capture the action, as here:

note - these are three different "attacks" not a continuous sequence )

What have they done to these pictures, yes they are sharp but they look horrible especially the last one
Look like cut outs from other pictures.
All the best

Being left handed my brain sometimes works sdrawkcab


Lots of cameras and lenses.
