Hey everyone I just got the 100-400mm L Series and am loving it but would love to see some night game photos if possible.

Thanks so much in advance.

It's an awesome lens but night action isn't exactly what it's known for unless maybe it's coupled with supplemental lighting.

you might be able to get some shots at the wider end with exterrior lighting; but at 400 its rough with any amount of action.

even a 2.8 has a low % of keepers at night, with the 100-400L at night w/o much exterrior lighting you might as well have the lens cap on if you want to stop action; that doesn't mean you can't get cool shots at night with it; just gotta have a different intent for a final product.

Very tough with low light. These were not exactly night game shots but low light overcast and twilite shots. Very difficult with any movement at all. All but the first one were taken with 100-400mm.

Yes, you can bring any camera/lens, you just can't bring a camera bag...

Redskins: Take All the Pix You Want

Come on back, photographers, the stadium's safe. The Washington Redskins are apologizing to a University of Maryland student who was removed from his seat at this season's home opener, questioned by security officers and had his camera confiscated--all because he was taking photos of the game and his friends.

Redskins senior vice president Karl Swanson tells me that the officers who took Reza Farhoodi's camera and the team official who told the fan that "professional" cameras are banned from the House That Jack Built acted in error and that a Skins manager will contact Farhoodi to convey the team's regrets.

"Our stadium policy clearly states that still cameras are allowed," Swanson said in an email this morning. "Video cameras are not. There is no distinction between a 'professional' and 'amateur' camera. The security guards were in error, and we appreciate Mr. Farhoodi including his seat location so they can be spoken to. This is a perplexing one, which never should have happened. Mr. Farhoodi will be hearing from stadium management, who clearly will be offering an apology."
