ouch! I swear every time I looked at that I saw 1/200, not 1/20. I need to delete and bury that post.

WOW!! This thread is great and it confirms that I made the right choice for buying a 70-300mm IS lens today to use at my daughter's soccer games! This is great and I can't wait to get to some games to shoot with it!

I also used this lens for my son's soccer. It worked very well. Because the barrel extends during focusing, it required some time to become accustomed. I found that if I pulled the camera firmly into my forehead, my aim and focus improved. This is similar to steadying your handgun in a two hand grip by pulling with one hand and pushing with the other. I eventually went with the 70-200 f/2.8 because of the frequent night games once he made varsity. But I miss the extra reach of the 70-300. I still have this lens, and when weight is a factor, it'll accompany me rather than the 70-200.

joosay, nice photos. Have you considered putting a few lines of space between each so that each can be viewed more easily?
