Experienced sports photographers (including myself) know, also, that an SLR
is the way to go with serious sports photography. You just can't follow
focus with an M6 like you can with any SLR. It's possible, but good sports
photography isn't setting focus and waiting for the subject to enter the
plane of foucs (for most action sports anyway). Talk about anticipation!
