Now, I have not even updated to latest firmware for my XE/1 and 55/200. Combo. But, I trotted off to the MCG in melbourne to take in an Aussie rules footy match between Collingwood and some other bunch (GWS). Fair dinkum to the authorities there for not jumping on me when I pulled out the combo to snap away.

Using a mixture of focus, continuous focus, manual infinity and shutter mash......at ISO3200-6400 to get reasonable shutter speeds, these are some of the results.

When I got back to my cuz's house we ran them through her top of the range Panasonic TV. THEY WERE SIMPLY STELLAR. Bearing in mind I have permanent tremor of the left hand they looked so sharp, colourful, and without the fuzzy graininess of the high iso.

These don't do it justice here on the net. They looked disappointingly ordinary on my iPad and an LCD computer monitor. As you can see, these are cropped to isolate action.

Cheers

Pete

Nice work Pete! First and last are my favorites from the set.

Check out the firmware update for the X-E1, I think you'll be pleased with the improvements, too :2thumbs:
