Pushing the limits of the E-M1

I went to a state pageant tonight and took some photos of the young ladies competing in the talent portion of the pageant.

I knew there would be fast dancing and wanted the highest shutter speed I could get. I decided to set the ISO at 2500 because I was concerned about too much noise above that. I was using my 50-200mm lens. I shot manual f/3.5, 1/400 sec.

As you can see one of her hands is blurry so I wish I could have used a higher shutter speed.

All in all, I doubt I could have gotten as clean a shot from my E-5 under these conditions.
