Old 5MP camera goes to the Triathlon (8 imgs)

The weather forecast for this year's London triathlon was accurately doom-laden, so the E-1 was pressed into service.

Sadly I don't have the 50-200 lens to go with it, so made do with the mk1 40-150, shielding it from the rain as much as I could - although it did still get quite a soaking and appears to have made it through that experience unscathed (I left it fully telescoped to dry out for some time afterwards).

Last year I took a supposedly much more capable camera and lens combination to shoot this event in kinder weather conditions - but I can't see that the shots were any better than what I got this year, and the quality (or lack of) of the shots is entirely related to my operator failure rather than being to do with equipment.

A few of the better ones:

C&C welcomed.

Thanks for looking,
