Default The E-5 and C-AF

(if there is an ad, i don't endorse it)

Well Lady's and Gent's. Here is my first go at C-AF with the E-5. I've got three consecutive series here. Two are onto Smug, and the third I have to mess around a bit because of duplicate filenames (one of the many settings on a new camera that needs tweaking). I'll get there!

Pics follow.

Default 1st series

I used the E-5 and the 50-200SWD at 200mm and f3.5 to limit DOF as much as I could. Conditions were hazy sunshine.













So far so good.

If this means CAF finally works on an Oly DSLR, that's great!

I also have to say that this photo seems to show that you have a male dog fixin to get a good sniff, just like what my male dogs like to do wth my female...

Default Some initial conclusions

First, I was center point small at high frame rate. These are straight from the camera, and I was a lot more concerned about keeping the point on target that exposure and all that other stuff.

I'm not saying this is the toughest of the tough as far as AF tests are concerned as the dogs were less than full tilt and there was a sideways component in two of the series. They were, however, wide open and the DOF did get quite narrow, and I must say I'm encouraged. I'd say a definate step up from how the E-3 did in similar circumstances.

If the subject isn't in focus when you start, forget about it. The camera will NOT catch up. If you half press and allow the camera to obtain focus, it holds it really well. There is no jumpy action with the focus as the E-3 displayed. I never really noticed the camera moving focus.

Like I said before, I'm encouraged!!!
