I'm getting back into photography after a 20 year hiatus. Cut my teeth with the K-1000.

I'm getting into Equine Sports Photography, trying my hand at it at least. I work as stablemaster to my family ranch, and I get to see a lot of horses doing pretty amazing things...

This is the set I'm getting: Sigma SA-7 set

Mainly I'm hoping you folks will tell me that I'm good for speedy focus and action.

Looking at all the features on this, in 1983 this would have cost $2,000-$3,000 (and some of the stuff wouldn't be available at all).

Also, the lenses automatically set F-stop and Shutter Speed.

Is it normal for auto lenses to be able to lock the F-Stop?

The reason is I'd like to lock my depth of field to be very shallow. I'll deal if I can't, but it would be nice...

And, too, is anyone around here doing sports photogaphy at all? Little Leage or whatever?

That reminds me of the SNL skit where they were shown a million previews before the movie. They all starred Meryl Streep. :lol:
