    hadnt been to the Ringling Bros. Circus in many years. i brought my epl5 and mostly shot my leica elmar-c 90/4 at f4 iso 1600 manual SS around 1/250-300 (wider look shots from the oly 14/2.5). had a great time and the camera acquitted itself very well. hope these give a feeling of what great fun the circus is.

    The low light capabilities of this camera are fantastic. On the circus itself, I never enjoyed. Even as a kid, I found making the majestic animals do silly tricks was just sad. But to each his own I guess.

    Agreed. They're nice photos from a technical standpoint, but the one of the tiger standing on its toes (in particular) was depressing.
