Used the 500 for shooting soccer yesterday, fc copenhagen vs fc midtjylland,
a bit on the long side, but definately fast enough.

How difficult was it to shoot soccer with the 500mm IS?

I have usually been using the 300 2.8 IS, and that is a lot easier by all means. Using the 500 is not hard, but you miss more shots because of the distance/framing. I think its fun to use the 500, the worst downside is f/4 though.. I definately prefer f/2.8

Nice Steve. Still in Florida. I will be in Myrtle Beach again this year and will visit the Huntington Beach again. This time I plan to walk out to the the Jetti to see what I can capture out there. I plan to purchase a backpack to hike out there (don't want to walk the beach for 1 mile with my rig over my shoulders). I also will go to the nature center so that I can get some more (better) shots of the Painted Bunting.

No, I'm back home Al. When do you plan to travel to Myrtle Beach?

DITO!!! I shot my cousin high school soccer games with the 500 and the 1d3 I found it hard to be on point, then I switch bodies to the 5D2 and it gave me more room but still tight, that's when I said the 300mm f2.8 would kick arse. Now i'm saving up for one. ;)

Here is the result of the 500mmand soccer.

1D3 f5.6 iso400

and the 5D2 f4 iso800

The perfect lens would be the 400mm or the 300mm, but the 500mm make you work for the shots. even if you shoot from the far out side point as possible. I also took the 70-200 f.28L IS and it came in handy.
