    Doesn't it just, Great Shot t-up
    In theory there's no difference between theory and practice but in practice there is.

          Hi Henk, click on the image to go to its page on the site gallery and you can see the exif data there. I have cropped about half the frame off. It's part of a sequence taken in continuous shooting with continuous AF switched on, using the Zuiko 90-250, on a monopod.

                I could have done with that lens today - mind it was raining hard Aldbury way.

                Two very nice pix Ian.

                    I looked 'APAF'up but all I came up with was 'Aircraft Procurement, Air Force'

                      APAF

                      How about

                      All Points Auto Focus

                      as Oly US refer to it as meaning having the 11 points active.

                        Ah! - OK

                        I was using the five centre points in the diamond arrangement.

                          sry (sorry).....

                          that's good enough to show that the camera once locked onto the subject in C-AF kept focusing on the same subject despite the subject moving to a different AF 'spot' or area.

                          well that's how I interpret the results you have.

                          I hope to shoot some falconry tomorrow and will be using similar settings and hoping for the best my cheap little 70-283/3.5-4.9 can deliver!

                            Great shots Ian. 5 point AF certainly works. APAF certainly does not but I can live with that for the time being.

                            The question I have is that Canon and Nikon seem to have APAF working also. What can be done to achieve this on Olympus E series cameras. I think the Canon has 48 point AF.

                              The truth be said, the gull (is it a gull? - kind ornithologists, please correct me if I'm wrong!) was in the centre of the frame, but I have cropped for artistic effect.
