    You could always line-up with the team ... LOL

    You know, for those middle-of-the-action & extreme close-ups.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    back from the game

    I sat in the stands tonight with my wife, 70-300 did pretty good in the first half, still light enough, and the flood lights were on. still the long zoom against fast movement..........what ya gonna do...reach for the 2.8. In two weeks I will be closer I have "sideline access" at home games. Panda Bear had a few good tips a few postings back in a thread I started on sports action. Frank I think you will be fine on Sunday, it is a day game correct. Look for shots where players are "setting up" before they start moving, if you watch the formation you can have a pretty good idea at least which side of the field the ball is going to, if not to what player. I did "pretty good" I guess with some side view shots at the start and end of plays before they got up to speed. also high speed drive helps you, or at least me get lucky lol. in a 5 shot burst I caught one of our guys mid air upside down head over heels with the ball in 2 shots it is a bit noisy and out of sharp focus though The 35 minute lighting delay at half time and then the soft drizzle sent the A700 to the car for the rest of the night
