    you're gonna love it. don't limit yourself to sports and action shots either. it is a beautiful portrait lens.

    your exposures are a tad off on those shots. if you have them in raw try bumping your EV up by 1/2 a stop, (maybe even a full stop), i think it will make a big difference. check what colour mode you;re using aswell, it looks oversaturated so i wonder if you're on colour mode IIIa ?? try using Ia or II.

    what a shame about the bar in the last photo. the sharpness of the ball in the basket looks awesome with the players out of focus !

    i did a quick adjustment in L&C and saturation. what do you think ?

    thanks for the tips i appreaciate it. i didnt shoot in raw only because im havving some minor problems with my computer. but i agree on some of the exposures the lighting in that court changes so damn fast it took me a while to adjust and get it quick enuff while finding the shot. oh and i hear its a great portrait lens aswell just need to get some subjects
