Meijer State Games in Michigan 7's tournament. I bought a Canon 2x TC (mk 1) to try with my 70-200 2.8L. Read the reviews about AF and sharpness issues but I had to try it myself. Definitely lowers the keeper rate, but if you stop it down its not to bad.
All 3 shot with 7D mk1 and 70-200 2.8L with 2x TC. 3200 ISO @ f/7.1 400mm

Like the timing on 2 would prefer to see the face on the guy getting hit it's obviously going to hurt ! Could maybe crop both of them tighter. Good job though !

All good captures, number1 for me. Number 2 is a great example of where not to put your head in making a tackle. But all good and sharp.Nice work

A real hard habit to break for guys who grow up playing American football.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Some great shots in this thread.

I have not been here for a while so thought I would add a few, these are mixtures of national league, championship and women's premiership / six nations rugby.

I will have to check when I am on my computer next, I was using a 7D and a 70-200 2.8L for that shot I think; I would have been shooting at 2.8.

And yeah the quality of pitches are very different; the women's Premiership match was very long grass as they had been having issues on that pitch with flooding leading up to it.
