75mm and 9fps

Last night I had a great time shooting at 9 fps at my daughter's soccer game. Much better than when I tried the GH2 at only 5.

The new Olympus 75mm lens is going to really help too. At F/1.8 you get great blurred backgrounds, and it will be a godsend for indoor sports and activities. The "activities" will be trouble for the GH2 though. If you can't use a tripod or shutter speed over 1/150th, you will risk soft images.

I am considering the Panasonic 35-100 F/2.8 lens, but want to see the size first and if it is soft on the long end (like many zooms). The 45mm and 75mm combo seem to be a much better option for lower light and blurring backgrounds.
