Great lens but not really long enough - but not much you can do about that.

For fast sports you need higher shutter speed (1/12500) so don't be shy about pushing the ISO up a bit.

It feels flat and lonely. No action and drama, this is what hokey is about.

Settings wise, I'll just get to the higher ISO, for more DoF. Shutter speed is OK, just don't have to be lower. And try to catch him closer. Much closer.

You best spot is by the gates, where drama is. With 200mm you'll get it close enough. This one is with 50mm on 35mm.

so do you do any post processing to get rid of the noise with the higher ISO? I use lightroom. I am trying to print a life size "fat Head" like poster.

I shoot a 7d mii and for most rinks shoot at 4000 iso with a shutter speed of 1/800. Using a 70-200 at 2.8. Cleans up great in Lightroom. For players of the age you are shooting 1/640 will work but aim for 1/800 or higher if you can. For your picture above a tighter zoom and you have the fathead. Good luck

Those are pretty much my settings with the 7D II/70-200 combo as well.

I recently picked up a 5D IV through these deals and can now say I can go to 5000 ISO with nice clean images. Those rare well lit youth hockey rinks can now be had for 2000-3200 with super clean files.

Here are a couple shots taken with my Cannon 80D. Using the 75-250mm Lens in sport mode. Need help to find the right settings to get better images. Sport mode is not cutting it.
