A7 + kit lens just spectacular at Boston Marathon!
Apr 21, 2014

Rita Jeptoo of Kenya became a three-time winner of the Boston Marathon, flying to the finish in a course-record time of 2:18:57. Here captured at the 26.2 mile mark in Brookline - with a 100 meter lead. This is about a 50% crop.

More images to come later this evening. But let me just say that this experience LAID WASTE to those who knock the AF capabilities of the A7. With the 70-200mm AF lens, I'll be I'd be the A7 can stand its own tracking just about any sport.

I also shot some nice images with my 70-210mm Nikkor - will explain how I nailed focus with it.
