G'day Litus

Hey matey ... your english is as good as your photos !! - nothing to apologise about
I do enjoy your images - very sharp and detailed, so I agree with your choice of lens
Well done

Phil

This would be a great test for the E-M1X with it's new intelligent autofocus tracking subject ability, since one of the first three to be included is motor sports.

Of course, nothing beats the intelligence of a human that knows what the heck they're doing, and you appear to be one of those for sure, LOL. These are great. This makes for two posters here who shoot motor sports, and very well to boot. Excellent stuff..

Thanks for your comments.

Finding the configuration has not been easy, the stabilizer of the body I had to deactivate it and only occasionally left the lens.
AFC in cross mode

AF scannner mode 1

Sensitivity of the AFC in 0



With Canon maybe it had something more sharp but the weight killed me.



Good pictures

Nice shots, use the same camera/lens combination (use to shoot Canon as well). The 100-400 is a little soft at the long end but still very acceptable.

Thanks for posting these photos. They are so impressive that I decided to take a look your Fliker gallery. Much to my surprise, you also have a few photos of birds of prey. These photos really do show the sharpness of the P100-400mm.

hoping to see more in the future.
