    Thanks for the link! I had a great time out there. At some point I hope to get a media credential to shoot the actual tournament. Would be great fun!

    I took my E-M5 with the mZD 40-150mm II R out to a recent Softball Tournament and found that it performed amazingly fast. I was standing at the first base line right at the fence.

    I was very happy with the speed of focus from zooming out to a play outfield and then immediately zooming back to the play right in front of me at first base and the slowest part of the whole process was not the AF, but how quickly I could rotate the zoom.

    I was shooting in S-AF because it really was fast enough to capture the moment as it was coming directly at me. I never did try C-AF, so I would be interested to know how that performs.

    Thanks the OP for posting the link, and...

    Jordan, as always, your article is succinct and spot-on with your comments on the E-M5. I especially appreciate your tips on how you set up your shots, which are terrific, BTW... :thumbup:
