I have been shooting daytime baseball and football for the last couple of years and now that most of the kids on these teams are going to be heading to High School next year, some of the parents have asked me to shoot their kids and I know a lot of the games will be at night. I find that while I love shooting with the 70-200, the reach can be troublesome at times.
My current system that I shoot with is:
70-200 f/2.8 (version 1)
I have an opportunity to purchase the 100-400 II (used) and would like to hear from those of you if this lens would be a good choice for me to use. I know that the 5d3 has great high ISO but are there any other limitations to using this setup that I don't know about?
I am also thinking of getting a 2nd body to pair with either lens (depending on the lighting situation). I have heard good things about the 7d2 (longer reach being its a crop factor) but would something like a 1d mk IV be a better route? Budget for body approx 1k
I would like to purchase the lens in the next few weeks and then will be able to get a 2nd body after the new year since baseball won't start until spring.
If there are any other suggestions other than what I have mentioned I would truly appreciate your input.
