    So I grabbed this the other day out at a nature trail. These butterflys move fast. I was using the 4/3 40-150, and I was playing with the burst mode on the EP1.
    Out of 20 shots, a few of them turned out pretty sharp. The butterfly was about 8ft away in this thick flowering stuff. Focusing was difficult, because the buttefly sort of
    hops along the flowers and getting a good shot at the right time seemed difficult.

    Wow - I am certainly impressed! I love the way you focussed right on the butterfly. I'm not sure if you planned it just as it turned out, however I think you did extremely well. Nice ones, DJ!

    BBW,

    These pictures make me long for the 14-140 mFT :( .

    Focusing with this lens sometimes just isn't fast enough.

    I'm sure, DJ. I can't even focus with a normal lens very fast.:wink:
