    Yes, 70-200 2.8L Mark II would be a great lens. It depends on the location and the lighting. Today, I was at ISO3200, 1/640th and f2.0.

    If I was using the 70-200 f2.8L, I would have had to either drop the shutter speed or raise the ISO. I had to use primes.

    85/1.8 is relatively less expensive, focuses very quick and allows pictures in poorly lit gyms.

    I own a OMD, except I haven't used it for badminton purposes. But very good camera!!!!!!!!! I am a DSLR user and wanted something small for travel purposes, took it out of it's amazing box, had a few shots and could picture myself using the camera all the time. Just feels great in the hands.

    Hey hey...
    I'm late to this game.

    I picked up the E-M1 when it was first released.

    As my first foray into m4/3 it's been pretty interesting.

    I too am a traditional DSLR shooter, with a sizeable investment in the canikon ecosystems.

    Very good solid little cameras, and the image quality is surprisingly good.
    The shutter speed is awesome as is the FPS, though I'd recommend of course always renting the equipment to try before buying.
    I'd also recommend a fast memory card, if you decide to use the EM-1 for fast motion images, slower cards bogged down while saving for me.

    AF for my purposes, performed well.


    edit: Haven't used it for badminton, but have used it for other fast motion images.
    Will pick up the recently released lens (40-150mm f2.8) to give it a try around October.

    For comparison I did pick up the Fuji XT-1, Sony a7S, and Panasonic GH4 as I'm learning video, and working on a documentary project for charity.

    I'll post back some images for them when I have time to take some for badminton/sports.
