Yes, of course. I get the feeling using my 75 Summilux that some times I
could shoot some action with it (stopped down somewhat). Just last week I
photographed a group of junior high school kids at a sock hop (dance to 50s
music for all you non-retro Yanks). I was lucky to get most of my stuff in
focus, but it took a whole lot more work than an SLR would have.
