That must be very frustrating!

Where do you get these focusing charts like the one on the link?

I found it here

Thanks:)

I love to do portraits, and have just started to shoot weddings. I also shoot indoor sports, events, and other stuff.

Best regards/Daniel

75ft size. I can go around the swimming pool, right now I'm studying my canon setting that will look nice with my kids in the pool.

Nice that 85mm can be use in indoor basketball. How about MMA? anybody have experience with 85?

I've done wrestling and MMA, but with the 50mm. When i used the 50mm I was hoping for just a bit more reach, and a little quicker AF. Finally got the 85mm, and I'm hoping its the answer to my prayers!

Maybe it's a good thing that the 85mm gives you a good reach and that keeps you away from the pool water. ;)

And this is both nice, and evenly lit. ;)
@ Wikipedersen; Nice strike. I note the one on the right has a twin. They seem to be symmetrical all the way down except for the very last bit. :)
