    I would try to get at least 500th sec at 2.8-3.2 and just bump the iso up until you hit those numbers.

    I am a novice with a Canon 7 D. I tried to shoot my daughter's gymnastics meets last season, but did not do well. What lens do I need?

    a Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS ii or a 300mm f2.8, or a 200mm f2.8 L or a 135mm f2 L, possibly even the 85mm f1.8 L depending on how close you can get.
