I was able to make it to Fenway park for a Sox-Royals game while on vacation this past week and took my new 70-200 vr for the ride. My seats down the third base line about 20 rows up from the field so my reach was a little limited but I was able to take some of these. Seems like most of the good action I caught was on the base paths. Mike Lowell with the rare steal slides into 2nd base (was actually a botched hit and run) (190 mm f4) Julio Lugo applies the tag just ahead of the runners feet touching 2nd for the out. (200mm f4) Mark Teahan beats the throw to the plate as Doug Mirabelli was trying to block the plate. (200mm f4 iso 800) This one was not a play at a base but a great grab against the wall the led to a double play when Emil Brown leaped and caught this Ortiz hit ( 112 mm f5.6) Any suggestions or insight on best practices with this lense to minimize noise and to help with back focus (in my case it's user error not the lense) I had quite a few shots wide open where I missed the shot because my focus was off. All of these had some slight adjustments in caputre NX but no noise reduction software used. Curious if I would benefit for a higher megapixel with the crop but still enjoying and learning with the d50. Thanks in advance for any comments or advice on how to improve them.
