This weekend, I gave myself an assignment to see what kind of different photographs I could make at my daughter’s soccer game using only the 70-200VR. I tried to avoid the usual action shots and look for something different. It was a fun exercise and I’m going to repeat it again next week with the 12-24. Here are a few of the photos.

Jeff,

Very nice soccer shots. Sharp and well exposed. The 70-200VR is one heck of a lens, huh?

You and the kids pictured will enjoy these for years to come. ;-)

Regards,

Frank

Love those crisp shots! I'm just starting with this lens and it's nice to see what it can produce in various hands! Good shots, Cheers

When I shoot rugby I've so far used Sigma 70-300 or Sigma 170-500 or recently the Nikkor 80-200 AFS.

I've often thought about the challenge of seeing what sort of shots I could get if I restricted myself to my Nikkor 50mm 1.8, but I've never dared take the risk through fear of missing too much.

So.........................

I will monitor your experiment with avid interest.

Thanks for sharing.
