Greg, I linked this thread to a friend of mine and this was his response. BTW he is a Tiger fan as well.

Wow those pictures and the quality are amazing!! What detail in the pictures. Thank you for sending my way.

Thank you,

Jon Stirling

Thanks, James. It's always worth seeing what other people have to say, positive or negative.

That was funny.....now.

I was locked in on him in that at-bat. As soon as it flew out of his hands women all around started screaming as it landed almost even with the area where I was sitting, but when you first bring the camera down after having been zoomed in at around 250-260mm, it takes you a couple of seconds to re-adjust and I was ducking and covering up not knowing for sure at first where it landed, which was not anywhere close to my seat, but it did make it out to my section, which was further than he hit any baseball last night .

I like the show of Jim Leyland. He looks cranky as ever.

Yes, at least I didn't catch him puffing on any cigarettes. I've seen him doing that before. Baseball may have finally cracked down on that one and banned smoking in the dugout.

You're welcome Greg. And this comment is from a someone not into cameras.

I did get a kick out of the frame showing the photogs. with their giant lenses. They all seemed to be looking at you with your little OM-D5.

BTW, AF system seems a tad improved in the OM-D5 over previous Pens.

Zig
+1 on what Zig said, I definitely get a kick out of seeing them all with their big primes

A picture speaks a thousand words....where is it?

Why would I do that and have something like that to sit and look at.

I've never been comfortable shooting pictures of fans in the stands. With all the people sitting around, you never know who's looking.

Hey, Bob, here's one more image I processed later I shot of Jim Leyland behind the batting cage. Does the other guy in uniform with the sun glasses look familiar?
