p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Micro Four Thirds motorsports / racing sample photos? (40-150mm f/2.8)


Hello! Wondering if any of you m43 shooters out there shoot automotive racing and happen to have some sample images you could share with me? Specifically interested in seeing shots from the Oly 40-150mm f/2.8, but it seems strangely difficult to track down many from searching. I guess it's not a really popular photo subject for m43, but the AF speed (at least in S-AF) is definitely capable, so I'm trying to get a sense of the lens's image capabilities for this use (especially subject separation for a car-sized object at typical race/spectator distances), and hear any thoughts (and see any results) from those that may have tried it. Thanks in advance!

Not the 40-150, but I'd assume the m4/3 lens would be even better

I'm currently locked out of my flikr account (login problems yet again) but this album from a couple of years ago may be of interest, shot using the EM-5 mk2 + 40-150 pro

sorry its messing about still and the link is giving an Error 404, have a look at my flikr site, Brian Wadie Photographer and its the Album for NG Road Racing 25-7-2015 (its on the second page)

It was a great combination for this use

finally got access to my flikr, a couple of images from the Road Race meet

and one from last year's meet, of an unfortunate rider with a fire in the belly pan (he made it to the pits in time)

Shot with the EM-1 + PL100-400
