Back to working in the night club tonight, the club is very dark and only lit by coloured spots and lazers. So a real good test for the new mkii. My old mki was hopeless at focussing in the club and I had to resort to setting focus to manual, set lens focus to 3 feet and shoot at f/8.

Tonight was really impressive with the mkii out of over 400 shots 3 had missed focus, on the dance floor i had a couple of occasions where the camera briefly hunted this was whilst focussing on silhouettes.

Anyhow heres an image, the door behind is open and outside is obviously dark.
