Well, I don't get the responses in this thread. The OP asked for advice on zoom lenses that would give her more reach than the one that she is already using, and you are just prattling on about camera bodies. Totally irrelevant.


I’ve had more intelligent conversations with lobotomised amoebas.

I think she got her answer or answers long ago over at the Canon ef lens section. :) I know because I was in that discussion.

OK DR is a bit different than ISO performance. I could see the DR being better, if you have underexposed areas and push those up a bit. Anything from 2011-ish or earlier from Canon could be a bit lacking in that department due to the sensor/ADC design.

Because sometimes someone's expectations aren't going to come true no matter how much they spend, if they are limited in another area. In this case, she is limited by the camera body. She also did not mention a budget number, so while she was being told to get a lens that used is $800+, she may only have a $400 budget. Since her primary goal was to get better sports action, a suggestion was made to have a body better capable of capturing you guessed it... sports! She can spent $10k on a prime L and if the body can't AF fast enough for the action she wishes to capture, then it's just $10k wasted.

These are not bad at all. The first one I would try cropping vertical and a bit tighter on the two jumpers. Since the feet/ground are lost already, maybe a vertical crop from the waist or mid thigh up. Too bad about cutting off the ball, but with a slow frame rate camera you don't always get the peak action.

The second I would try cropping into just the 3 players in the middle that are involved in the action. The rest of the players are contributing nothing to the picture.


WHY would you crop for a vertical composition when it should have been shot that way?

Way too many are afraid to shoot vertical compositions. Look at magazine covers - very few are horizontal setups.

When you are shooting action sports, you don't always have the luxury of time to change orientation for compositional purposes.

Maybe you need to work more with your gear and your technique?

I'll try and phrase this nicely.

What in the world are you talking about?

Is one trying to capture the action, or get a magazine cover without a cropped photo?

In 1 second a human can jump about 2 feet in the air, in that same 1 second they can travel almost 10 yards horizontally.

Why wouldn't you want to have the most area of coverage possible?
