    Thanks for the kind words. The gym is a combo gym/auditorium with a stage at one end (the end I was at). Bleachers are on one side only, the team benches are on the other. The bleachers are elevated...

    I don't even stand under the basket for that very reason. I don't want to distract a free throw shooter which might cause the coach some grief. But I do shoot from behind the baseline on either side...

    This is one of my favorite shots from the last basketball tournament I covered. I followed the action on the fast break. The defender tried to cut off the ball handler, but she faked her out,...

    @Spinning, I didn't see where you said what model of camera you are using.

    The problem with the dark diver is the camera was exposing for the sky and not the athlete. In that case, you need to...

    Canon 100-400L should fit the bill. It's not too heavy and produces some great images. I have used a 1.4x TC with it to give me 560mm.

    For sports you need a fast focusing camea body with a fast lens. I don't think those features are available in a superzoom. I use a Canon 40D with 70-200 f/2.8 for track and field, basketball and...

    Fast Pitch 16U

    Went to watch my niece play in a local girls 16 and under tournament last Sunday. This was the only picture I shot (and it's not of her). The competition was good and a joy to watch.

    Taking indoor sports pictures of your kids will usually mean less than average lighting like that found in school gyms. I agree with the idea of an 85 f/1.8. Set your ISO at 1600 (your max) with that...

    What lens...

    An alternativ for you to consider is the Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4. That would be like a 28-90mm lens in 35mm format. And it has pretty good reviews.

    Canon Rebel XT and Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 APO DG

    Works great for me. I bought it used for $675. Add a Sigma 1.4x TC and you have 98-280 f/4.0. Add a Sigma 2x TC and you have a 140-400 f/5.6.
    Good luck.
