    Yeah, I know, it's not as ballar as your set-ups. Heck, it's probably not even too good for badminton. However, for my needs, it should be ideal.

    More as I know it...I'll take some shots at SGVBC and see what happens.

    For that E-510, is the IS system in the lens or internal to the camera body?
