    You do a great job on capturing intriguing action shots. Now you just need the right equipment to deal with the crappy arena lighting. :) I like the last one the best because of the ice chips flying up.

    Thanks, I play the game myself....so I hope that leads me to the real action........

    as you can see by my signature..I'm dreaming of the f/2.8 and not using it. I'm debating taking my 50mm f/1.8 and just action shooting in the corner I'm in....really wish I had two cameras....

    thanks for the feedback..... :)

    For those who may be curious.......cuz I was.....

    Here is a web site of the Ice Bears team photographer. His name is Jeff and I've talked to him a couple times, ...nice guy.....he uses a Nikon D2H with the nikon 80-200mm f/2.8. It's what I've been comparing my pictures to.....

    Great shots but they will be even better when you get the F/2.8

    You should take some with your 50mm. I just got a 50mm F/1.8 for my XT and the shots come out amazingly.

    Okay, next day's game......

    This time I kicked my shutter to 1/80, dropped my ISO to 1250, and turned on the VR and tried to pan with the players. I think I shot less than half as much as I usually do, and had lots of bad shots........

    here's a few that were not so bad........
