I've gone through quite a bit of kit lately. First off, it's not because I got G.A.S or I have loads of money to waste, it's just that different genres have taken me in odd directions to which I have changed kit to suit.
I now find myself shooting more for an on-line agency called Demotix. Really enjoying it, and feel that citizen photojournalism via this agency is a not bad start.
Anyway, my point is that it would be ideal to have a two body set up. A telephoto on one and wide to medium on the other. However, I just don't want to start throwing money at kit in the hope that it is going to work again.
I've gone through a 7D, 1D Mark III and now the 5D Mark III. If I'm honest I don't think the 5D3 is the type of camera for this. It just feels very sluggish compared to the 1D3.
What would be your ideal set up for this type of work? I would like to try my hand at sporting events. The Commonwealth Games are in my home town at the moment so I've been all over the place shooting for that, but feel that I'm being limited in focal length and speed of body to action.
