Talked the wife into letting me get the Canon 70-200 F/2.8 IS II. What a difference in low light gyms! Got my ISO down to 3200, able to maintain shutter speeds of 1/500. It was a different gym than I normally shoot in, and the light was even WORSE than normal, but the shots came out very well. I need to work more on the much shallower DOF with the 2.8. This was the first time I had taken the lens out. Got a few ooooh's and aaaahhh's from other folks taking pictures. And I had several parents tell me that they appreciate the pictures I take of the team for them. :blushing: So here are some of my favorites from the tourney (that we lost. ) 1. Blocked! 2. Eye on the ball. (I was fortunate to get her shoes in the shot. Been working hard to not chop off the feet!) 3. Reach that ball. 4. Right back at you. 5. Coach says you better not miss this! 6. Strike a pose....or serve? 7. You gotta open your eyes to keep your eyes on the ball! Thanks for looking.
