    Some from the weekend. I shot most of the girls games with a 600/4 on a D2Xs and a 300/2.8 on a D2X plus some with the 600/4 on a D2Hs. The boys game I shot mostly with the 600/4 on the D2Hs and once in a while I picked up the X with a 300 on it. No post production. Just a tiny bit of cropping on a few and resizing.

    For next fall, I think I am going to have to pick up a 600/4. I just loved shooting that lens. My post production was greatly reduced as I was able to crop more in the frame. The only question left is will I be buying a Nikon 600 or a Canon 600 in the fall. That will be a business decision at that time not an emotional decision.

  2. very nice! I would love to try a 300f2.8, I may rent one next season....do you not use your 400 that often?

    Sweet shots Alex, your style of shooting is like a lesson in quality sports action photography for us. I like this series in every way.

    Great job as usual Alex! But what's with the thumbnail size pics? C'mon man, show your stuff!! :wink:

    You're definitely not alone there my friend...There's lots of us who may be sporting the big white "L's" if Nikon doesn't get their act together.

    The 400/2.8 is my primary lens and it is what is on my camera 90% of the time when shooting outdoor sports. I also usually keep a 200/2 on another body. Now I am thinking the 300/2.8 and 600/4 combo would be better in well lit situations.

    Just lazy. I did not want to have to post one size for my blog and another for my Pbase account to link here. I'll post a couple a bit larger.
