How are you finding the Olly compared to when you were with Canon, I know it's been a while now?
Hi Mark,

Thanks, you've got stop shooting all them portraits/weddings & shoot some motorsport instead .

Love the OM-D E-M1 great camera build, features, weight & image quality. The C-AF not as good as my 1D MKII N but better than my 10D (my first DSLR) and as good or if not better than my 20D. The lenses are very nice especially the Pro lenses.
Have a E-M10 as well as a second body which my son uses. The C-AF is average on this camera only having Contrast Detect AF and not having Phase Detection AF as well like the E-M1.
The E-M1 is a very capable camera for sports & action photography and has gotten even better with each firmware update (very impressed with Olympus's support for this camera with just having another update last November). Just wafting for Olympus 300mm f4 Pro or the Panasonic 100-400mm lens to come out due next year.

I like the compactness & weight of the Micro 4/3 system just got tired of lugging around all that Canon gear when I was out with my kids.
