I shot a women’s soccer game with Panasonic G9 + Panasonic 200 2.8 lens. The lens’s official name is Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 POWER O.I.S. This was my first game shooting 100% with Panasonic’s ecosystem. Panasonic G9 has been always good in AF but have not found my goto telephoto lens yet. Well until now. I still have my trusty Canon 1DX + 200-400 F4 lens but honestly, it’s too big and heavy. With an addition of Panasonic 200 2.8 Leica branded lens, I now can cover more games without a lot of limitation.
Another game, again with Panasonic 200 2.8 lens. AF was really good.
Panasonic 200 2.8 lens comes with a 1.4 x teleconverter. I tried it and found no loss in picture quality – I shot whole first half using Panasonic 200 2.8 with the teleconverter. Pretty excited having a Panasonic 200 2.8 lens in my bag. This Sat, I will be using it for our football game at night.
