    Just for kicks, I tried to challenge the E-P3's Continuous Auto Focus.

    This first batch was taken while driving at 30mph. The camera was set on "Action" mode and was hand held while I drove. (I was watching the road ahead of me, if that makes it any more excusable.) 14-42mm kit lens. Shutter speed ranged from 800 to 1000:

    This second batch was my friend trying to evade the camera. "Action" mode once again. 14-42mm kit lens. Shutter speed ranged from 1250 to 1600:
