    Some really spectacular photos in there (actually, pretty all of them are spectacular)!

    The car flying upside down - I do hope the driver got out allright?

    Man you're good. Thanks for posting, I am a bit obsessive about motorsport and spend most of my man money on trying and failing to be a successful racing driver.

    Your work is always inspiring, fantastic stuff man. Goes to show you don't need the latest and greatest cameras to make good photographs. Older cameras like the GH1 and GF2 can produce incredible images just fine in capable hands.

    And i keep reading from people that m43 CANT do action sports. Or they cant be quick enough to catch toddlers around the house...

    WOW! No kidding a lot of pics. Very nice ones too.
    A friend of mine used to do some motorsports photography. One of his big things was to shoot the Pikes Peak race. I have done car shows but never races. It looks like a lot of fun though.

    Very impressive I must say. I didn't think this was possible using a contrast dedect focus system.

    Which lenses were you using when you took these pictures? I have a Sony A55 and a Tamron 70-200 which I keep basically just to be able to get good pictures of rally, rallycross, mx and folkrace.

    Seeing this makes me wonder if I can sell it and only use my E-PM2.....

    When shooting with the Pana 20mm, oly 45mm, oly 75mm what focus method/methods are you using?

    Great shots as always :smile:

    SAF mostly, prefocus sometimes, and sometimes just shot, depends on the situation/direction/speed of the subject.

    I'm a car/truck/moto guy though don't often shoot action, but was/am a little concerned about my new m4/3 kit and 'action shots'.

    You obviously have great skill and a good eye. Do I understand correctly that all of these racing photos you posted were shot with m4/3?

    Thanks.

    As we all know but sometimes forget: It's so much more about the painter than the paintbrush.

    Great photos as usual! If I had to pick a favorite set, I really like the Off Road Dalboa pics.
