I spent a day with a trackside pro at Thruxton last October shooting the NG motorcycle championship meet. Having access to those areas the public can't access was a revelation when it came to "Getting the shot"

The pro's comment re my results from my EM-1 + 35-100 f2.8 and Oly 40-150 (yes, that's all I needed to get the shots, I had my 75-300 with me but it was too long!) was that, if he was starting out again he would seriously be looking at the m4/3rds systems. As it was he would stick with his Nikons (twin D200's would you believe!) as he knew them intimately, worked with their limitations and was confident that they would always help him deliver what his clients wanted

For 90+% of the time I would suggest its not what you have got but what you do with it that matters!

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
