    You're doing great stuff with that 75mm Gary. I don't think I have any need or use for that lens, but you're making me wonder...

    I'm surprised you had enough light for that 100-300 shot - normal stage lighting???

    Alan,

    Those are amazing. I especially love the first image. This also provides insight to FLs I've been considering. Thanks for sharing.

    I just looked on B&H to find this about the 100-300: "Zoom Range: 200-600mm (35mm Equivalent)." That's not correct the Zoom range is 100-300 with crop equivalent of 200-600.

    Morning Ray,

    I love the 75mm just wish it was a bit longer, like 90mm or 100mm. For what and how you shoot, it isn't very practical. But, (the big but), if you wanna change your style a bit, dust off the EVF, you'll love this lens also. When it cools down a bit, I take the 75mm to the streets, just to see.

    I'd call it normal stage lighting. I've found stage lighting, even high school stage lighting, to be pretty good stuff. Just be careful how you meter. Using a wide evaluative metering will include all the dark, dead areas where the spot lights drop-off. Using "spot" metering on the face ignores the dead areas and in this case, allows one to effectively use a slow lens. Between, the spot metering, elevated ISO and IBIS, the 100-300 was quite workable.

    GRAA0291.

    PS- Did Philly make the play-offs?

    More excellent photos! I love that the IBIS of the E-M5 let's you use the 100-300 for shots like this. On my E-P3 I'm pretty solid in low light at 100mm, but much beyond that is tough handheld. Someday I'll be able to upgrade to the E-M5 . . . . :rolleyes:
