Freestyle Trials Motorcycles
These blokes were at the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix as part of the off track entertainment. Took some shots just to give the E-M1 C-AF another tryout with something different, they were taken at very high shutter speeds (safe shots). The more I use this camera the more impressed I am with it and the Micro Four Thirds System.

Fun subject! Which lens were you using?

.....some really good stuff with these Tom.

I was asked by a close friend who races vintage MX to come do some shots of him and his sons but it was the day after my airport day and I just could not do it, but I will one day.

I've never shot MX but did race MX many years ago and Bobby said I could ride his 250 if I would get to the track.............. hmmmmmm, been now exactly 42-years since last on a MX bike, that being a 400 Maico so I will leave it at that, but photographing a MX race would be fun.

Glad you are liking the 43-system, I have always enjoyed your work with motorsports.

Thanks Greg, lens used was LUMIX 45-150/F4.0-5.6. This is a great lens very sharp and I picked it up brand new on sale for half price which makes it even better.
