What would be a good second lens to use on a second body(40d) for shooting volleyball? I used the 70-200 f2.8 on my 7d, and used a 50 f1.8 on my 40d. I didn't like the results I was getting with the 50mm (slow AF, soft images etc). It just wasn't working in a action setting for me.
There is a tournament I'll be shooting in 2 weeks and was getting to rent a lens. I was thinking of going with the 50 f1.4. The length on the 50 was fine, it captured the spots that were too close for the 70-200. I think anything shorter would be too wide. The refs had us standing behind them at midcourt on either side of the net.
I was wondering if anyone else had any other lens suggestions?
