    Might I ask a question? Do you prefocus at the jumps or do you autofocus each shot?

    I use a combination of both, if i have time i will prefocus mostly with the 5D the 1D I will track, When im using the 300F2.8 i use the focus preset on one jump then i allways know that if i turn the barrel i'm ready to shoot that jump, #6 + 7 are the 5D

    Here's nother 5D shot, i didn't think it would be so good for sport, but i have used it on dog agility and it handled it no problem shooting at ISO3200 all day

    Nice shots, gsgary. I think my fav is the one in post #5 :) - it's a nice crop and the sky is not competing for viewing time; your focus in on the horse and rider.

    "6 Early take off" Did it make the jump? Looks like a long way to go to clear it. Great shots.
