    I keep seeing people asking about shooting in dark stadiums. I switched from a D700 to the E-M1. I am constantly being told you can't shoot football with anything other than a Nikon or Canon. Our field is poorly lit. Because it's a fixed lens, I do get less pictures than I would with a zoom. I'm happy with the results so far. This is my first outing. All shot with an E-M1 and the Zuiko 150mm f2. In the first picture, the player caught the ball right in front of me. I was rather surprised that the E-M1 adjusted from across the field to about 10 feet away immediately. I also posted this in the 150mm f2 showcase.

    I also posted this in the 150mm f2 showcase so people can see what this lens can do.

    Thanks. I shoot RAW and run it through DXO Optics Pro, and I have the noise reduction set low. These were all ISO 1600 or 1250, so the noise wasn't bad.
