You have a bit of blur on the foot and hand- not sure it that is a DOF issue, or if it's motion. 1/400 is usually ok for wrestling, but there are moments when things move quickly and you'll get some blur. It seem a touch underexposed too- not much detail in the black shirt.

Wrestling can be tough- gym lights are really not ideal. If it's allowed, I've done well with some fill flash to make things clearer. There are sync speed issues, but again- wrestlers aren't always moving at top speed.

If you can't add some light, then you need to do the impossible- use a faster shutter speed, increase the exposure, and keep a clean photo. If you move your shutter to 1/500, then you have to bump up the iso 1/3 stop just to keep the exposure the same. Ideally, you'd probably end up at 12,800, 1/500 and f2.8... but that may end up grainy.

Faster lens? I've used the 135 f2.0 or the 85 1.8 with good results. That will keep your iso out of the stratosphere...

You did capture a good moment here though- If your the parent of the wrestler in black anyway. ;)

I appreciate the feedback.

I am the parent of the black wrestler!
Glad to hear you have had good results with the 85 1.8 because I just bought that lens this week for this purpose.

Being an athlete in my day I tend to stay away from flash if at all possible but I agree it would make things a bit clearer.

I'll try out the 85 1.8 at the next wrestling tournament to see what I get.

Thank you.

+1 on the 85/1.8 for wrestling The FOV generally works well, and it's fast focusing.

For a long time, I shot indoor sports with a Rebel and a 40D. f 1.8 was my salvation.

Ultimately, It's nice to have a body that will allow clean shots at 2.8. There are more lens selections, and zooms add some versatility. But- We make the best of things with the tools we have.
