Besides South Africa, the USA fans picked up on these horns also as we had an influx of them from China at the time the US National Team was starting to gain steam with Lallos etc.. Why was nothing said long ago? You always knew when America was playing as the horns were popular with a lot of the fans. It only takes a small group though to make themselves noticed.

Just got to chalk it up to a lesson learned by giving the cup to SA. The fans are free to make as much noise as they like.

Default FZ38/35 Zoom

Thanks Paul - The FZ38/35 Zoom really worked well for me too.
An example - This was a difficult shot as I was at maximum zoom, hand held
and did not want to go past ISO 200: Happy Swiss team members thank
the crowd after their win!

(These were fast moving athletes in less than ideal stadium lighting.
Always a challenge! - One thing with this camera: My "throw away" images
are way less than 2%.....it truly very seldom fails to take decent shots).
