Default Very rare Animal...

and I spotted one at the track today with my E1 and the 40-150 f4-5.6 Zuiko. The two-headed, eight legged horse..



In all seriousness now (!), I left the 50-200 SWD home today and took the 70-300 and 40-150 Zuikos to use with the E1. I brought both for the added range when the races were on the inside turf track.











Ah...there WERE two horses there!

........yesterday I again thought about the track and you maybe being there, THEN I re-thought that when I checked the temp @ 104 F here.

........so I stayed inside with the COOL.

It doesn't seem to matter your hardware at the track, given that one only knows there is a difference amongst the results of the different lenses it remains that ALL results from any of your combination are very very good.

These should go a long ways, with Steven's air show shots, to convince Harj the new 40-150 is worth having in the sock.

It was darn hot. I stayed out just long enough to get my shots, then was back into the cool of the club house. At 25-30 minutes between races, it works out well. Sundays are great days after what are always busy Saturdays.

Next Saturday is $1 day, so Sunday would, again, be a good hangover day to be at the track! I may do the Twins and Rangers Saturday night.

It's official. Bought the ticket for this Saturday night vs. the Twins. Section 35, Row 6.

Hi Greg

Those shots are superb - the best so far no 6 and no 8 are pretty special capturing the action spot on. Cracking stuff and who would have thought they were taken with kit grade glass!

Cheers

Harj

Thanks HarjTT!

The 300mm focal length really draws you in, especially in images like those of the pack as they all round the final turn and you catch the moment where everyone looks like they are coming right at the lens.
