    I took my new G5 out for the first time to try and see what I could get from it at a HS football game. I have been following this football team for years and am a bit of a fanatic. From previous experience I knew that you better get what you can this time of year as early in the game as possible, as once the sun is fully down you can't get the shutter speed you need to stop action.

    All I had to shoot with is my O40-150, which is a good bit slower than what I am used to using, and at the distance I was, most of these are fairly severe crops.

    All in all, not too bad. Not as good as I got with my Canon and 70-200, but not bad. I did have to get used to some differences, like the EVF vs. the LVF, but the most important thing is I really enjoyed myself, and I proved to myself that while the G5 isn't the best tool for the job, it can do ok. I just need some faster glass.

    OK, that's enough. Thanks for looking.

    The slight motion blur adds to the sense of action imho.
