Some great pictures there @Kae1 great to be at a track again !Still making the most of the racing available before spectators are excluded from circuits as infection rates start to rise again. This time another trip to Oulton Park to watch some bikes on a bit of a cold day.
I've cured my GAS but now have GABS (Grab a Bargain Syndrome) and with the recent "free" f1.2 lens offer have traded my G9 for an EMI ii. As my muscles struggle with the cold I took my 70-300 as the main lens for a lighter weight kit. The weather was kind enough to provide bright sunlight and overcast clouds to let me test out the new camera and a good opportunity to see what I'd got.
I'm very impressed with the camera's handling and blown away by the CAF and its ability to prove, to me at least, that the 70-300 is a very good lens (actually a 10 on my GABS scale). Depending on what I do with the "free" lens this is my best value motorsport kit ever.View attachment 849978View attachment 849980View attachment 849979View attachment 849986View attachment 849981View attachment 849983View attachment 849982.
Thanks Rob for the kind words.Just one observation - your number 81 bike 2nd from end - rider has very blown out white crash helmet - all detail has been lost and it stands out against the rest of the scene - this isn’t a criticism as I often have the same problem but worth looking at a solution ?
Not sure if it’s inherent dynamic range limitations or processing but something to consider as I say I have had the same issue almost always with white crash helmets both with M43 and with Fuji XT3 even when the rest of the bike and rider and scene are well / correctly exposed ?
Thank you for the kind words.Ok.. so.. Panasonic G9 to OMD EM1 mk2. Good? Bad? Bloody fantastic swap over? Worth the change? Easier to focus/keep focus? More keepers?
