    Every year for the last five years I've enjoyed photographing this Chinese New Year event. I've tried a variety of cameras and lenses but felt the Olympus OMD EM-5 did a very nice job. I used the Pana Leica 25 f1.4 and the Olympus 45 f1.8. I set the camera on shutter priority and left the shutter speed at 1/200, auto ISO and the photos were all very sharp. The lighting was ever changing and the auto ISO really helped with that. I set the camera not to go over 3200. The fast fps of the Olympus OMD EM5 worked out really well. I won't be toting my Canon 7d back to events like this anymore!
