View Full Version : E-5 and indoor sports

It seemes like I've got an opportunity to try the E-5 in what, for me, is the ultimate test to see if Olympus have gone in the right direction.

I've got accreditation for 3 indoor athletics events over the next 2 months and Olympus have been kind to lend me the E-5 to test for indoor sport. That means SHG, high ISO's and fast shutter speeds. Looking forward to this. Also gives me trips to Glasgow, Sheffield and Birmingham. A nice tour. Will post photos and my verdict when it's done.

Sounds great - and a real challenge. Please keep us posted on how it goes.

Good luck ... John

I've been happy with the 600/620 except from a few things. Examples from the E-600/620 used in sports :
50mm, f2.8, ISO800, 1/500sec
104mm, f3.2, ISO200, 1/800sec
104mm, f3.2, ISO1000, 1/250sec
83mm, f3.1, ISO200, 1/800sec
