Oh wait, Olympus cannot do indoor sports, right?

I just shot two days of indoor Aikido competition in a venue that is mostly used for theater and events.

A few shots were done with fisheye (ZD8mm on E-3 or Rokinon 7.5mm on E-M5) and for very few I used the ZD150mm. That last one is a stellar lens, but not really needed if you are the event photographer who is allowed to get really really close (right next to the edge of the competition tatami mats).

The bulk of my shooting was with ZD35-100mmF2 on E-5 and µFT12-40mmF2.8 on E-M5.

My gallery is filled with way too many images (because I cater to an audience that wants to see themselves in the shots), but here are a few samples:

Here's the set if you really cannot get enough of this kind of action:
