    rotating between 70-200 2.8 and 135 f2
    the difference on 1 stop makes a significant difference in noise levels here especially when shooting at iso4000

    Great photos as always abedeng!

    I think the Maybank girls appear to be more disinterested in their jobs than the Djarum girls? Nevertheless, Malaysia and Indonesia remain the 2 best countries that try to at least market the event! You can only see the Yonex-Sunrise stall in the Hong Kong Colliseum during the HK SS.

    Oh....our dear PBSI external liason official is in town.....no wonder I called his Jakarta number to no avail yesterday!

    Well, where Maybank Girls are concerned, it is all about tradition, or rather, the lack of it. You cannot create a tradition such as the Djarum Girls, it had to be nurtured over decades ..... pity that Djarum Girls are going to be extinct ....

    Our friend looked to be very happy today, a lot of high fives back and forth .... and that was before Sony and Hendra/Ahsan won their matches .....

    Is it just me? But Xie Zhongbo has grown "old" so much over the past few years? Although not as extreme as Zhang Jun, he seems to be expanding sideways too. Hmm.....
