E-PM2 continuous performance

For anyone interested, I was at the Red Bull Soapbox Race at the weekend and used continuous focus. The focus performance exceeded my expectation. I was using the Olympus E-PM2 with 40-150mm IIR lens through.

I wrote about the focus performance in my blog with a lot of example photos.

You haven't mentioned in your blog or here exactly which set of focus points were used : single, pattern, all of them - or whatever options the e-pM2 has.

Re: E-PM2 continuous performance

I initially used the centre focus point, but as I was using continuous focus with tracking (C-AF+TR), once focus is achieved, the camera tries to track focus regardless to which focus point the subject is under. Seems to work most of the time.
