    I got to play around with quite a range of my M4/3 equipment at the weekend for the annual Britcar 24hr race. I was a little nervous at how the equipment might hold up in ridiculously challenging conditions, but it all really held its own quite brilliantly (the 45mm 1.8 was a revelation!)

    It makes me chuckle when I read the ongoing arguments about using M4/3 equipment for sports/motorsport (particularly on DPReview), especially considering the reaction many of these shots has got from some of the teams etc involved in this event...

    E-PL2 and 45mm 1.8 (AP @ f3.2)

    E-PL2 and Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye

    G3 and 100-300mm (SP @ 1/320)

    G3 and 100-300mm (SP @ 1/160)

    G3 and 100-300mm (AP @ 5.6)

    G3 and 45mm 1.8 (AP @ 1.8, ISO 800)

    G3 and 45mm 1.8 (AP @ 1.8, ISO 400)

    G3 and 45mm 1.8 (AP @ 1.8, ISO 1600)

    G3 and 100-300mm (SP @ 1/50, ISO 800)

    G3 and 45mm 1.8 (AP @ 1.8, ISO 800)

    Christ you're good. I'd poked through your blog in the past but these shots are really a step above. Also I see a Mazda 3 #55 :D :D I had hoped that I wouldn't want the 45mm after all, but now I really have to buy it.

    Excellent shots to show to everybody who are arguing that Micro 4/3 can't do this or that or whatever :2thumbs:

    Great set, I went last year and smiled at the Mark 2 I think it was golf that was taking part!
