    Last weekend I finally got to shoot with my new 70-200 2.8. There were about 8 games going on at the same time so I took shots from all of them.
    Here area just a few, still learning the controls on the lens but so far I love it :Love:. These were all handheld on a sunny/cloudy day.

    #1 - Loved the facial expression

    #2 - Got the bat on the ball

    #3 - This little guy caused an uproar between both of the teams coaches. As soon as the batter stepped into the batters box he was firing the pitch.

    Nice Shots. I like the expression also. I need to get more action shots. I know I'll have a lot when my kid gets older.

    Congrats on getting the news lens Brian, you are going to love it. Your baseball shots look great and they are going to get even better.
     
  4. Wow, these are great and you're going to love shooting with this glass for a long time to come!
     
  5. nice shots Brian. Given that it's my only big (fast) glass, I love it as well :biggrin: I got a TC17 this spring and it's been a good addition as long as I watch my max focal length.
     
  6. Very nice the 70-200 is a great lens and works very well with the 1.4 to give you 320mm at f4

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I am kind of pleased with these images, but I see alot of room for improvment.

    - Chris & Mike, the TC1.7 or 1.4 has been on my list since I bought the 70-200. I am going to start looking this week and should have one soon.
