    I´ve been sick the last couple of days, and my new Oly 40-150mm have just been standing here... but today i heard about this enduro race cloesby, and even though i propably should have stayed home i went out for 1 hour and got some testshots atleast, and i think this lens is going to be a good friend to me :)
    Most shots here i took with (e-M1) C-AF with tracking and there´s not many images that had missed fokus.

    Hi Grid,

    very nice first shots. I think EM1+40-150 is a very capable combo, especially in your hands. I look forward to the photos you will show us in future!!!!

    Get well soon and have fun with the new lens

    Christof

    Just got mine and am waiting for an opportunity to try some BIF or any fast moving target. Can't wait as it seems to be improved. I'm still trying to find some local place or thing to practice shooting moving shots. No carousel nearby, no places near a freeway and no reliable bird/seagull spots. I'm wracking my brain to find something to shoot. There aren't any outdoor sports right now.

    Well done Grid!
    Excellent results. I think that combo is a very capable gear for action sports and moving subjects in general.
    It's a joy to look at your pictures.
    I wish you a fast recover.
