    Good captures, however something about the white balance doesn't quite appeal to me... it's probably just the flourescent light though.

    Thanks & I'll take 100% credit for the poor post-processing too (you won't hear me blame the equipment)...:redface:

    Nice shots! As someone who's been eyeing the E-PL5 for a while, I've read that it doesn't do as well with action photography. What do you do to capture that quick movement so well?

    Nice shots!

    I am very excited to see what my Lynx can do in the playoffs.

    Thanks but you should see the size of my recycle bin. :biggrin:
    Anyways, what seemed to work best for me at this event was to shoot in continuous autofocus mode with high-speed burst.

    i think the clariity of these given the low light and action nature are just great. i agree about the WB--too yellow/green.

    can you discuss the iso and aperture you used? i am expecting my epl5/oly 45/1.8 any day now and your shots have whetted my whistle!

    Copy that. I'll see what I can do for future post-processing on the white balance. :smile:

    All shots were with my M. Zuiko 75mm at ƒ1.8. 1/1600 shutter speed was used most of the time at ISO 800

    i,m amazed at the in focus DOF you got with a 75mm lens at 1.8! thats amazing. i have a zeiss biotar 75/1.5 and i seemingly get a little less DOF at 2.8...

    and the iso800 clarity is very encouraging. do you find IQ noticeably deteriorates with the epl5 at 1600?

    There is a visible difference between 800 & 1600. Whether or not the deterioration is palatable is up to the user. :smile:

    That being said, I've shot quite a few shots at 1600 that I have no issues with. :smile:

    Edit: I forgot to mention that I also used the smaller focus point size. I don't know if this was a good thing or not but that's what I went with. :redface:
