    Great expressions and shots.

    I'll have to beg ignorance of this sport. I've heard it mentioned many times but never seen a match

    Awesome action shots and expressions captured. The brilliant images from the FE 90 shows just how versatile the macro lens really is.

    thanks everyone, i didn't know what beach handball was either, this was the first time that i've ever seen it... it's closely related to handball that's played on hard floors, with a net, but the old handball that i remember was where people smacked the ball against a wall, using their hands... with this game, you throw the ball into the net, and you can't cross the goal area limit line, unless you are throwing the ball while jumping, or defending against that... the offensive player that's taking the shot will do a full 360 degree jump/rotation off of the line, it's crazy.

    yes the fe90 delivered, at 15fps, who ever heard of a macro lens being used for action sports shooting? i was shocked at the results, because i'd seen claims that it was "slow to focus"... not hardly, lol

    I have to say, I find women's handball to be more visually interesting! :D

    These are great! I never would have thought that a macro lens could AF fast enough for sports!
