Thanks Russ -- when this lens sits for a while, I always consider selling, but then I have a scenario to use it, and it never disappoints. I don't think I'd be able to let this go for a while. hah

If you do sell give me the shot to buy it back :).

Here's a few from shooting men's basketball tonight -- didn't end up using my 35mm and just used my 70-200mm the whole time:

Very nice shots CJ! How did you find the 6D AF? I love to shoot basketball and tried with the 5D Mark III and wasn't disappointed. But this gear is really expensive. So if the 6D is capable it may be an option.

Thanks. Considering a lot of shots are centered when shooting basketball, I didn't really have much issue. On occasion, the action would move quickly and missed focus but my hit rate was around 85%. Out of about 300 photos I only rejected about 50. Of the remaining, my keeper rate was just upto the action in the photo.
