    There is a Street Games (Trials Mountain bikes, skateboards, BMX etc) in Portsmouth UK today and tomorrow and I went along with my EM-5 and 25mm f/1.8. These are some of the better shots that I took (I was set to H drive mode and filled my 8GB card). I even bumped in to a fellow EM-5 shooter!

    Man, those are some seriously good action photographs.

    Remind me again why m4/3 is regarded as unsuitable for action/sports photography? :wink:

    Ah, the trick with these was to manually pre-focus and fire away! Although I did at first use AF-S and the camera nailed it most of the time. I ended up switching to manual after I focussed on the background a few times, but this was due to my bad aim as opposed to the auto focus capability!

    Manual pre-focus is sometimes far superior to auto focus IMO. I only ever shoot my Sigma DP1 that way. :2thumbs:
