    Yes, I had switched to mu-43 for sports a long time ago, before the E-M5 and before lenses like the m.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8. Instead I used bodies like the Mini (with VF-2) along with legacy lenses in a similar range to the 75mm. Difference is that I have to rely on more manual control but the setup and capabilities are the same. It is an amazing load off your back, being able to swing around a tiny mu-43 body and prime lens through an entire game instead of a big DSLR and fast zoom. I feel so much more active, liberated, and into the game because of the quick maneuverability and light load.

    I think the trick with CDAF optimized cameras is to use S-AF and press the shutter the moment you hear the beep. With PDAF cameras you can half-press and track the subject before firing the shutter.
