He posted his camera settings in the very first post of this thread. Did you miss that part? :D

Hi Kevin - these pictures are awesome and I have no words. Would you mind sharing the EXIF, metering type, dial mode and focus mode etc details?
Also, I have a 7D and planning to upgrade to 5d Mark II. You think it will work for sports photography? Mark II has 9 focus points and burst rate is low compared 7D. Do you have any suggestions for me? I appreciate it.

If your primary focus is sports, you'll be disappointed in the 5d, although it produces fantastic images, you'll have much higher keeper rates with the autofocus of a 7 or 1d.

Kevin, thank you very much for your response.
I shoot portraits and sports both, and actually, I volunteered to be a photographer for my 12 yr old volleyball tournaments, and it's going to be total 10-12 matches. I guess I am going to have to rent 1D Mark IV and see how it works for me. I already own 85mm f/1.8 and 70-200mm IS II lenses. Do you think I will need 24-70mm 2.8 USM too in addition to 135mm f/2.0?
Also, what about your comments on 1D Mark IV camera?

I don't ever use my 70-200 for VB, just the 85 and 135. I also only have a Mk III and like to keep ISO at 3200 or below and take advantage of the f/2 capability of the primes to keep shutter speeds up.

I think with the increased ISO of the Mk IV you will be fine with any combination of lenses you mentioned. I love the primes but a Mk IV and the new 70-200 would be a killer combination.

Unless you are looking for some creative, wide shots, I don't think you will find much need for the 24-70. I do find myself wishing for a bit more reach than 135 far more often than wishing for wider shots that would need something less than 85.

Hope that helps. Good luck!!

I missed this post. I fully agree. I have both a 5D and 5D Mk II and they just don't cut it for consistent AF performance. When they hit, they are awesome but way too may don't hit for my taste.

Superb images (although I'm sure you already know that ;) )
