Buy once cry once.

Buying used lenses is like dodging a bullet, albeit, some one did buy my lenses, they can vouch for you they were in good clean, no scratches on them etc...and still functional etc

Believe me, I don't need more debt, even for the sake of great pics. I'll manage another way...

Yep, that's what I do when I know I can't afford to buy it or just using it 1-2 times.

Nor my wife and 4-year-old son. That's why the 400mm f/5.6 is in the budget. Sure I'd REALLY love to have the 2.8 version of the 300mm or 400mm, anything I'd need that length for will be outdoors, and 90% daytime, so I can get away with 4.0 or 5.6. On the rare occasion that I might need 2.8 I'll just rent.

A good attitude to have mate, you don't have to go into debt, it will just lead to worse problems, and photography isn't about splashing the cash, its about dealing with what you can afford to have

I'll be shooting a series of games behind the net. Well not directly behind, but off to the side. I usually shoot events, pj, etc so this is new and failure is not an option.

I wish I could use the various focus points on the 5D II but need to stick to the center point for obvious reasons. I'll shoot a little wide to leave a some room for cropping since the main subject will be in the middle - no time to lock and recompose. How's this sound?

Gear: 5D II, Canon 70-200 f/2.8, Canon Grip with 2 batteries (higher FPS)

Camera setting - this is where I can use advice:
mode: manual
shutter speed 1/2000+ 1/3200 minimum?
f/2.8 to f/4 -
ISO - dunno - low as possible
Autofocus - AI SERVO
Continuous shooting mode
JPG (for faster FPS)

I can imagine the shoot will involve 99.99% of inactivity - maybe some crowd shots, punctuated by .01% of furious shooting as the players approach the net.

Thanks for the help!


I've shot lots of MLS games with 1D Mk IV and 70-200 MkII 2.8.

Although not for this shot - I usually shoot wide open, with a high enough ISO to achieve around 1/1000.

The new 2X extender couple with the 70-200 mkII is also a really nice pairing and considerably less of an investment than a 300 2.8 or a 400.

I use a 24-70 for the initial team photo.

Hi. A SS of 1/640 or 1/800 ought to be sufficient in good light. Aperture around f4 (avoid wider unless light levels dictate). I think your problem will be that a 5D doesn't have a high frame rate for continuous shooting.
