    I never shot a professional football game before, but assuming that I have good image stabilizing, what is a good shutter speed to maintain so that I can adjust accordingly? 1/1000? I'm willing to shot at 800-1600 ISO if necessarily. Of course, assuming that the target is moving at full speed and not standing still.

    1/500 will generally freeze 99% of motion. 1/250 will get you in the ballpark. Image stabilization only offsets hand-shake (and assists in panning, if that IS is available to you).

    yah I have the 70-200 f4l is. Not really the best lens to use in dim settings, but that's why I asked about the shutter speed.

    I'll keep it between 250-500, hopefully my shots will come out sharp.
