Nice shots. I love little league baseball when the kids aer coached correctly. I can't afford a 300/400mm so I'm adding a 1.4 extender to the mix this year. We'll see how it goes.

I'd think 70-200 would be plenty long for Little League -- does the league 'restrict' where you can shoot?

I've shot a ton of LL baseball and HS football with a 28-135 lens, and got good action. But, i had the run of the field (I was also director of program, so no one pushed me in a corner, like some leagues do)

nice shots tho'... that f2.8 should get some great ones.

Thanks for the comments! For little league and PAL football the 70-200 is more than sufficient. Once in a while I'll use a 1.4x. I can see the need for a longer lens as they move up to high school sports. They're much more restrictive of dugout and sideline access.

two great picture - really like the colors

given your ISO in #1, I think you could easily move up to 1/1000, or higher like in #2, to really freeze the action


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
