    Love this lens. Yes I think it focuses faster than the 50-200 as well.

    How fast is the lens to acquire focus compared to other m43 lenses at 150mm? Would it be possible to make a video showing AF speed of this lens on your EM1?

    Also, can the lens keep up with the EM1 shooting in either M or H burst mode with continuous AF?

    A video would be very much appreciated, since it would show me how fast this lens can acquire focus.

    As for the AFC, I ask because I enjoy shooting motorsports, and this lens paired with the EC-14 & E-M1 would be a very capable 400mm f/2.8 eqv. system. However AFC performance is very important due to the speed of the vehicles. My worry is, can the lens deliver the FPS that the camera is capable of in either the M or H burst modes (primarily M, since you still retain Live View which you lose when switching to H burst mode).


    Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it! Keep posting photos you take with this beauty!

    Looks great so far. Nice color and saturation. Bokeh looks pretty good too.

    Hey Phocal,
    How do you do the focus adjustment? You mentioned a focus tune target in your earlier post. Can you elaborate a bit or link me to a tutorial?
    Thanks,
