The lady had certainly forgotten to switch on her own SSS... Excuse the poor quality, the Oktoberfest that day was incredibly crowded and all but amusing.

Nice spot Markus - it certainly looks like she might be better off with a stabilised lens :D . I also like the guy in the background, wearing lederhosen, using his iPhone - they get everywhere!
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

Nice capture! Very close and candid, by virtue of being a crowded social event. That's an a300, isn't it?

@All: Glad you like this candid! The crop indicates it's a 350.

I was there with the family, and it was definitely not easy to guide two nine-year-olds through the crowd. The streets were littered with broken glass, to name just the most dangerous, plus decriments of all (smelly) kinds, and quite a number of people were heavily drunk already in the midst of the afternoon... That's the reason why many of the locals go there around noon, shortly after opening, and leave before these inclement circumstances.
