Featured If the Em1mk2 can do tennis even high iso then the EM1X ..... (img heavy)

    Depending where I am, like shooting a game in the bright SUN, I can't even do that. There is sooo much glare on the back screen that it is useless, without something like a "Hoodman" device, or a jacket over the camera and me (like looking at view camera ground glass screen). The EVF is immune to that problem, which is one reason I LIKE using the EM1 in the sun.

    If the EM1-mk3 can do half of what the EM1X can do, I will gladly switch from my D7200.
    The EM1X can do what I want, but I can't afford it, so I have to wait for the mk3.

    Kelly's comment is dead on target for me, the weight of the FX/DX gear is just too heavy, for this old man. The m4/3 gear lets me still shoot and be mobile, vs. fixed in a chair with a heavy lens on a monopod.

    As you probably, can guess, there are a lot of tennis magazines in our house nowadays, and I can honestly say that we do not pore over pixelative rolling shutter effects when looking at the photos - so your examples are mighty bloody fine to our eyes! I would suspect that only those taking photos, and perhaps 0.0000001% of the readers, would even question rolling shutter and the deformation of the ball on an exaggerated sliced serve.

    Thanks, too, for your continued advice on the 'other' thread Phil - much appreciated :)

    @AussiePhil@AussiePhil GREAT shots. :bravo-009:
    Gives me some new ideas to try to shoot next year, rather than my same old thing, that even I am getting bored at.

    Back in 2014, at the U.S. Open, I had the E-M1.1 and the 50-200 non-SWD four-thirds lens. Perhaps my favorite capture was the synchronized levitating Bryan Brothers.
