Re: 50-200mm SWD lens

Been there done that, I struggled with the first PBR I shot E510 w/40-150. After buying the 50-200 old version and upgrading to the E520 my shots at the next PBR improved quite a bit. Unfortunately 1600 on the 520 is pretty noisy, otherwise I find f2.8 at 1600 ISO adequate. You could pick up a PEN pretty cheap, Best Buy has them for $399 just this week, that would give you clean enough 1600 ISO and maybe even useable 3200 for a cheap price.

I should mention for those that don't know, PBR is Professional Bull Riding which was held inside a dome and obviously very fast action.
Have A Great Day!
