Lately it's been 85 1.8 and 135L. I have learned that a shutter speed of 1/500 is not fast enough though. LOL

Now that basketball season is almost over....

I shoot with my 7dmii and my 1dxmii with both the 70-200 2.8 and the 24-70 2.8 switching the lenses back and forth as needed.

I always shoot manual!

Here are a few from a recent State sub-sections game!

The 85 / 1.8 works best for me. It has more clarity than my 70-200 and works better in the lighting conditions I find in a high-school gym.

I have the 7DM2 as well, shoot high school bball in some lovely dungeons and am baffled how you're getting the noise handled this well at 12800 ISO. I shoot RAW, use LR v6. Curious what your workflow is and if you use LR would you be willing to share a preset based on what you - TeamSpeed did to these images?
