    A couple weeks ago I helped a buddy to shoot a race car for a drag racing event. I shot the race action using my Nikon DSLRs, but for the b-roll shots I used my NEX-6, 16-50 PZ and also an Olympus 9mm BCL on an M43 to E mount adapter. I also had a D800 and 24-120 f4 VR for my short lens setup, but I ended up putting that away in favor of the smaller (and lighter) NEX-6/16-50 combo. Check it out!

    Thanks! I wish I shot more with the 9mm BCL, but I was focusing more on shot details. I really like the 16-50 kit lens when I'm too lazy to haul the big guns!

    Here are some shots taken at the track, but all of these were shot with either a Nikon D3S or D800. ;)
