    This is the first time I tried shoting actions/sports shots. So any advice is helpful. I was using a 55-200mm lens. For sports shots is it more benifictial to use a longer zoom? Any C&C is welcome, like i said this is my first time tring this out and I would love to hear some ideas or hints that others may have learned already.

    Excellent shots! #3 is my favorite. For sports shots you want a lens that is fast (Small F-Stop numbers). :) I wish I could afford one!

    Great shots. Did you use any thing to protect the Camera? I would be so afraid of some one shooting it on me LOL.

    this was the first time i tried this and didnt have anything protecting it. I am looking for a cover of some sort.

    Ive played for many years so I kinda knew where was safe places to sit.

    What is considered a small F-stop? These pics were taken at F-stops of 5.6 to 7

    F2.8 would be the lowest you could find on 70-200mm lens, but these will run you anywhere between $1,200-2,000 depending on the brand (Actually Tamron sells a nice 70-200m F2.8 lens for around $680). Another low F stop lens you'll find are within the F4 range. These are much cheaper than the F2.8 lenses.
