Re: Have Fun!

I appreciate your reserved attitude towards 75-300, and did not mean you when used "hopeless" towards the lens. As for the image - that was the sort of action I normally wouldn't use superzooms for. My Canons (10D and 550d - or T2i) are too god for it :-). I will need to try HS30 though - as I found 300mm lens quite limiting when I can not come close to the action. Considering that I have such a need maybe three or four times a year - buying a 500mm L lens might not be even considered. Also I found HS30 to be an excellent backup - when I simply have no time or too lazy to change the lens. Or need something light but capable to take along on a leisurely stroll. Loved my FZ8 and used it for the purpose before, but it's sensor shamefully let the excellent Leica lens down regularly.
