I normally shoot with a Canon 6D and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L non-is. I always shoot in f/4 though because I find the DOF of 2.8 too shallow to make the entire motorcycle and rider sharp. I'm not afraid to go higher with the f/stop either beacuse the race I shoot at is from 10a-5p... plenty of sunlight.
* I mainly shoot at the full 200mm and sometimes I feel like I wish I had a little bit more zoom in some spots.
* I mainly shoot in Av mode and have it set to f/4, obviously changing to Tv mode for panning and certain shots where I want tirespin blur to be a thing.
* The racers I shoot are riding supermoto bikes(think dirt bikes with street tires) and they race a mixture of on a gokart track and there is an offroad section that looks like a mini motocross track
Anybody shoot motorsports(motorcycle racing in particular) with this lens? It seems like it might be a dated lens with no IS and older technology, so I'm wondering if it will feel like a beater compared to my 70-200mm.
