    As you probably saw, I got a new (to me) Sigma 70-200 f 2.8 over the weekend. Our high school team's first soccer match was my first chance to put it through its paces. These shots were taken at dusk with no additional illumination (the field lights weren't on), and I was still running upwards of 1/250s at ISO 100! :shock: :shock: :thumbsup:


    (On this first one, the focus jumped away from the girl with the ball at the last second, so I had to really boost her sharpness in PS)

    My keeper (I'm the goalkeeper coach) letting one in, but it's still a cool shot!

    I SO want that lens now. Course I'd have to have the camera to fit it first!

    That second one is ONE good action photo, taken in the best possible moment (though it is YOUR keeper letting one in... :(), and not only because of her most interesting OUTFIT (very, VERY colourful ;)). Do I miss her legs, though? I do!
