    All were taken under an overcast sky, ISO 200 f5.6 @ approx 1/320th. I used a bogen 3221 tripod and a beanbag for a little more stability.

  12. Breathtaking photos. I've been debating between the 80-200mm f/2.8 and the 300mm f/4 for shots of my son's soccer and some occasional birding shots. These shots are gorgeous examples of what the 300 f/4 can do, of course the photographer has a lot to do with them also. Thanks for sharing.
     
  13. Thanks for the kind comments. I use my 80-200 f/2.8 to shoot photos of my grandchildren's baseball and softball games, preferring the zoom capability for action shots. I'm not too good following action, and sometimes find the wider FOV an advantage. I've never been to a soccer game, so the bigger field may give the 300 an advantage. I do think my 300 f4 is sharper than my 80-200, so combined with the longer focal length, is better for birding.

    Good luck in your lens search!!
