    I originally became interested in m43 when I was looking for a tool to better capture paddling images. I was looking for portable high quality glass with good reach and a decent burst rate. I settled on an E-M5 and my primary lens for this is the 50-200 HG zoom (with the EC-14). Yes virginia you can shoot sports with m43.

    Sprint racing involves kayaks (two bladed paddle) and canoes (single bladed paddle). These are not your paddle on the lake in the afternoon type boats though. Distance range from 200m to 6000m with the benchmark distance being 1000m. Boat crews range from singles to C-15 with 14 paddlers and a cox.
