Sure, Jay, I suppose you are going to say "Hey oh well I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, and the light was right", and blah blah blah...hmm, well, I guess that's a good defense...but of course you totally worked over that one in Photoshop, right:):)?

Which one? The sunset ultralight or the Moonrise?

Umm, well, it must have been some kind of HDR stuff -- yeah, that's it, admit it:)!

Just wondering, never shooting with a long length like that before, would it be reliable for action shots on tripod ofcourse. I like to shoot action shots.

Define "Action" ?

I shoot airshows and other aviation events and do so hand held. Tripod is far to cumbersome and even a monopod is too limiting for shooting in three axis...

You'll find monopods used frequently for Football since the players spend most of their time in one plane...

Here are a couple football shots from training camp last year at 400mm handheld. My only 400mm lens is the 100-400L, and it's not fast enough for most football (especially night games), so I usually use the 70-200 f2.8 for that. I sometimes use the 100-400L for youth football afternoon games because there's enough light for the lens. I have a monopod and have used it shooting football, but the 100-400 and the 70-200 are light enough, and to shoot football you need a fast enough shutter speed that I prefer handheld to follow the action easier.

I'd say the levels of action lenses would be the 85 1.8, the 70-200 f/2.8, the 300 f/2.8 and then it keeps going -- there are amazing shots from the 500 f/4. The 100-400 is, like was mentioned above, pretty good in good light, then you have to keep upping your ISO since you are shooting at f/5.6 for longer focal lengths. But it's still a very useful lens within those parameters.

Since shutter speed is a big need for action a tripod will not do you as much good and will actually impede you somewhat, but as Jay said a monopod is quite common just to ease the long strain of a shoot and add some stability and it's easier to mobilize when you are using a monopod.

400mm while trying out the compatibility of the new 70-200 II & a 2x TC while deciding if the 70-200 was worth the price. It really is.
