BT Premiership rugby

A week on from the RBS6Nations victory for Scotland against Ireland at BT Murrayfield, it was a huge shift in venue, but the rugby was much more physical.

The conditions would have suited ducks better. This was a chance to experience the Fuji X-T2 in the wet, and poor light of February and on top of that, a premiership ground, lacking the illumination normally found at an International.

For the technical, Auto ISO set to max out at 6400,  the shutter speed on the bodies set at 1/1000th,  the Fuji XF 50-140/2.8 giving me a working iso of 2000, but with the slower Fuji XF 100-400/4.5-5.6 the iso was almost always pegged at 6400, oh Fuji where are your plans for a fast prime lens for sports photography ? Either 200/1.8 or 300/2 or push the boat and build both i am happy to test….

Anyway a few images to enjoy from today.
