Default E5, 50mm f2 macro and FL50R flash closeups

Captured RAW and processed in Adobe Camera RAW/Photoshop CS5. You can click on any of these and view any file size up to full resolution on my website.

Tomorrow night will be the Dallas Stars vs. the Montreal Canadiens National Hockey League contest, with the 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 SWD.

Hi Greg,

My, my............

Those first 2 are about as good as any images I've ever seen.

Greg, very nice, lots of detail in the pollen of the amaryllis. I will be interested in what you think of the weight, when you use it for the entire game. I am assuming of course you will not be using any support.

I disagree with Zig I'm a sucker for orchids so the last 2 are my favorites.

I love 'em, Greg. I'm REALLY missing my roses now that I have the 14-54mm. I may have to go out and buy a couple at the florist just to play.

The stadium where they play these will not allow any sort of support unless you are there shooting for the media, so handheld is the only option. All I have to worry about is picking the wrong security person and having them question whether or not it is a "professional" camera. If it does not say "Canon" or "Nikon" and as long as the lens is not white, you are usually OK, but I do not mount the grip on the body or have the hood on the lens to keep the mass down as much as possible.

The E5 body itself is not that much heavier than the E30, which I have taken to past games with the 50-200, so I don't really anticipate too much of an issue shooting throughout the game. Having two between-period breaks and being seated also makes it much easier.

congrats, you must have found a security guard in the right mood.
