Hello, I got a new (to me) 400/2.8 AF-S to use tonight, I am quite please with the isolation (bokeh is lovely) and the closer view (was using 70-200VR before), Far less cropping with d2h is quite imporant, This was a crazy weather day, it never rained but was so humid everythign was covered with a mist-like fog. Doing some levels on the images improves the color, but these are far from optimal conditions. I started also using my noise reduction (I use noiseware) more aggressively to see how it would do. The Cycloens lost 7-3 to the Williamsport Crosscutters #10 Josh Petersen was 2 for 3 #40 Jorge Reyes was teh Cyclone starter, he gave up 3 earned runs (4 total) over 5 innings for the loss Luis Munoz #45 (Williamsport) pitched 6 innings, giving up only 1 run for the win Armand Gaerlan #6, the Cyclones 2Bman was 2-4 with a homerun and 2RBI, here he is congratulated at hte plate after his homer #7, SS, Brett Lillibridge 1-5, HR, 3RBI for Williamport For those of you following my questions about d2x, glass, etc. to improve my sports shooting, I definitely am happy with the 400/2.8 and think it was the right decision. However next chunk of cash I get , I think I will be buying a d2hs for better high iso performance.
