just kidding of course
day off for me, the 70-300VR
Man, 2 and 4 really make that look like a physical baseball game!
I really like the depth of the color in these shots. Nice job!
Very nice, I really need to use mine more.... hmmm the great part could be the thing holding the lens and camera.. Nice work as always.
those were 2 very strange plays in a somewhat boring pitchers duel of a game but any game that starts at 1pm ET works for me
I am using mine more than I thought because it's so small and light....it works even better for BIFs and the AF is very fast
This $500 lens really raises the bar. Very nice Randy.
Nice title...how original.
FFS, give it a rest, eh?
and it's so bad the price is still going down
but lack of bokeh is certainly hurting it's value
Seems $500 well spent. The lens performs well with good light.
it does need alot of light and for me it's not intended as a primary lens for anything but it's a lens i use when i am tired of the big heavy ones....after 3-4 soccer games this little lens lets me shoot 1-2 more that i would not have got
Randy, you have shown us time and time again that it is not the lens but the person behind the lens who makes the difference. Great shots as always!!
That's a fine set of shots, Randy... enough to trigger my Lust Reflex. But I'm already jammed up at the telephoto end with a 180/2.8 and the 80-200/2/.8. The extra reach would be nice for wildlife and field sports, but I'm not doing too much of either these days... so maybe it's a $500 itch that really doesn't need scratching.
Out of curiosity, what were the focal lengths used for these pics? I don't need the data... I'm just wondering how much you used the 200-300 part of the range.
i was at 300mm for almost all the infield action & at ss &
2nd base....i did notice some AF misses yesterday that i hadn't seen before so I'll take the 70-200vr today
The lens seems to be at it's sweet spot shoting at f6.3-f8 & BIFs is my fav use so far (when the sky is your bg and bokeh doesn't matter)
I like it better for soccer when the action is more predictable if i can cntl the bg....moving and firing fast in baseball may be to much for it to lock AF enuf for me
here's an Osprey shot from last week using the 70-300vr...
IQ surprised me and was very close to the 300/4
fl 300mm at 6.3
Nice light and super colors. That lens sure is sharp! Good job as always Randy!
