Thanks mate. Dunno what's going on with the season here but I normally only see these in spring/summer. All my aloes are in flower early and the grevilleas haven't stopped flowering all year. I even saw a scarlet honeyeater on the grevillea yesterday but it had gone by the time I went back inside for the camera. The cam netting's gone up on the pergola just in case everything visits early this year but it's looking that way.

I hate shooting over water on a hot day with a long lens but any shot is better than no shot I guess.

USS Ronald Reagan docked at Port of Brisbane, Australia. Unfortunately, this was the closest we were allowed to get which was the other side of the river

Yes. Works good for day games. Don't even bother under the lights. And you won't quite get the subject/background separation that you would get using the long F/2.8 primes.

I have a lot of sports photos taken with it in my gallery.

Yeah I shot a night game using my 300L F4 IS and that day I learned what the meaning of a fast lens was. I wished I had one more stop as I was maxed out with ISO. Even at 1/500 I was getting hand and foot motion blur that showed a little movement which was not al bad. It would have been impossible to freeze that.

However that being said with every new body release high ISO capabilities improve. Even then I would still prefer a faster lens. If I were to shoot another night game I would use my 70-200 2.8. I shoot my buddies indoor hockey games with my 2.8. If had have no other choice I'm not afraid to shoot at very high ISO's.

And it depends on the sport - it would be excellent for panning shots of cycling, for example (or I assume it would, but haven't tried). That's a whole different beast from field sports though.
