Decided to go black and white and run with the inevitable grain from shooting at ISO800. Digital Rebel, EF50mm f/1.8

thanks guys, had a great time and was really happy with the results. Missed some great ones because of the slow focusing on the 50 1.8; ended up going manual focus. It was a different feeling watching the fights through the lens :) More shots at http://www.photo.net ...b/folder?folder_id=​625747external link

When you can get yourself a Canon 24-70 2.8. That is what I used and it worked really pretty good. I was going to try my 50 1/4 but never got a chance. Another photog used a 70-200, and some of his shot looked pretty awesome too.

yeah, I'm thinking the 70-200 2.8 IS might be the way to go. I could then get up in the VIP box and shoot over the ropes but still get some tight shots.

Yeah, ROFLMAO!! That last one is priceless! He looks so much bigger than the guy running... It would make a good motivational poster for career change...from boxer to runner!
