    I'm very excited to be going to the athletics next Saturday night, sitting fairly high up in the stands. I will take my GF3 and want to take some snaps of the occasion - I know I am not going to get close-up shots of the action. I want pictures of the stadium, runners lining up, my wife and I in the stands etc.

    I don't have a zoom and I don't really want to be changing lenses - a single lens would be ideal.

    I have 14mm, 20mm and 45mm. 14mm only? 20mm only? 14mm and 20mm? 14mm and 45mm? I've never been in a big stadium before so I'm not quite sure what I'll want.

    Thanks for your help.

    Any "Olympus" should do

    :rofl:


    I vote 14 and 45. 14 for the big wide shots and 45 plus some crazy crops and you might be able to get some of the action.

    Last winter at Lucas Oil Stadium from the upper deck I had to use the 20mm to get the entire field at once.

    From mid level seats on the 20 yard line I used the 300mm to see individual performers (FOV at mid field was about 5 yards wide).
