Last night attended the Mixed Martial Arts competition in Pueblo Colorado. I was fortunate to have a great seat, and had a VIP pass so was able to take in my D3 with 70-200mm lens w/o question. I was shooting with manual white balance, and manual focus (auto-focus thrown off by cage fencing), hand held.

I was shooting next to a person shooting with cannon gear. We began chatting, and she ended up borrowing my Expodisc to correct the white balance. She commented positively on how well my camera was performing with no flash.

Here is one of many shots that night. This shot was taken right before the banged up fighter was KO'd.

I also love the great low-light shooting, hand held.
