Not sure why this thread does not show many sports/action images. The 5D3 is amazing at capturing day and night action.
I use mine for sports action, but it's all fishing and shooting and I don't like to saturate the thread with stuff that won't be of much interest to the majority of folks. I do put up a few fishing action shots and they seem to be quite well received. I'm not sure how well shooting pics will be received, so I haven't really put up any of them. I have never fired a shotgun in my life, but I go out with some guys who shoot pheasants in the winter. I enjoy the exercise, and it's a real challenge to get good captures - they shoot guns; I shoot them .
Here's a couple - you can let me know if it's inappropriate to post them here - if so, I will remove them.
I should add that the gun did not take that shot as it was not safe with the bird so low - he was just tracking it. I was tracking it too and I did take the shot.
In this next pic, the bird is a woodcock, which is 'fair game', though the guns tend not to shoot them. The woodcock are wild, whereas the pheasants are reared and then released. The gun is not tracking the bird at all, but again, I was.
This next one is at 1/500s, and the lead shot is captured in mid-air...
