WRC madness!

May 10, 2010

Not quite retro nor classic, but I had a chance to scope out Rally NZ on the weekend. Cheaped out this year and didn’t go to any of the paying stages – but the Domain super special stage was a good enough approximation, albeit rather dark…

this Olympus E-30 continues to impress with its ability to perform reasonably well even in crap low light conditions. And don’t get me started on the merits of the “trashy” 40-150mm kit lens that came with my old E-500. (I like it, actually)

otherwise there’s a selection of photos for quick perusal after the jump!

OK, normally I wouldn’t put anything on that didn’t have some kind of automotive deal going on, this is borderline at the very best, but I saw it and I loved it. It does have some cars in it, so that will have to do.
