    I'm getting back into photography after a 20 year hiatus. Cut my teeth with the K-1000.

    I'm getting into Equine Sports Photography, trying my hand at it at least. I work as stablemaster to my family ranch, and I get to see a lot of horses doing pretty amazing things...

    This is the set I'm getting: Sigma SA-7 set

    Mainly I'm hoping you folks will tell me that I'm good for speedy focus and action.

    Looking at all the features on this, in 1983 this would have cost $2,000-$3,000 (and some of the stuff wouldn't be available at all).

    Also, the lenses automatically set F-stop and Shutter Speed.

    Is it normal for auto lenses to be able to lock the F-Stop?

    The reason is I'd like to lock my depth of field to be very shallow. I'll deal if I can't, but it would be nice...

    And, too, is anyone around here doing sports photogaphy at all? Little Leage or whatever?

    :D

    That reminds me of the SNL skit where they were shown a million previews before the movie. They all starred Meryl Streep. :lol:
