    Hi all,

    I am very excited really, had a first real chance to test my new 50-140 in action along with the XT2 which I had been trying to learn over the last couple of weeks.

    Some of the top world tennis girls came to Doha this week to participate in Qatar WTA Total Open.

    Great tennis indeed, some photos below.

    Pictures are SOOC JPEGs, no editing other than cropping performed.

    I was testing it with both Manual mode with auto ISO, as well as A priority with ISO set at 200.

    Burst High mode with AF-C Zone focus, 3x3 size, custom settings: tracking sensitivity 0, Speed Tracking 1, Zone Area Switching to Front.

    Almost all were in focus with an occasional out of focus shot where the 3x3 zone turned out to be too large still and caught an object behind a player. Out of over 400 shots, there were 5 or 6 of those at the most....
