These photos were shot in a very dim gym and this is the first time I've been able to pick up anything worthwhile without using flash. The Mark III was set to between iso 1250 and 2000 but mostly between 1250 and 1600 and the 80/1.2 was usually set from F/1.4 to F/1.8. Shots were resized of course and no noiseware was applied. Saturation remained high at these iso speeds.

I appreciate you taking the time to look

Good Stuff normcar!

I like them all. Good action and faces. Pretty much straight out of the camera is impressive.

I agree - really good stuff. Especially using such shallow dof! Nicely done!

Thanks, John, I was pleased with the DOF thing myself, I guess if the shooter isn't coming towards the camera it works sometimes. I like the light offered by the lens and am somewhat surprised at how efficient it can be with the slow focus.

Much thanks Viznquest. Finally some light breaks through the darkness without that nasty flash :G
