it took me one night of shooting a hockey game to get used to it

actually only 2 periods, at the beginning of the 3rd period they told me to put it away because I didn't have a media pass lol

well then you can answer another of my questions, how is it in low light indoor types of activities?

not too bad, between IS and raising the ISO a little bit it's not that hard to work with at all, here are the hockey pictures I was talking about http://www.flickr.com …r/sets/72157603​512505293/ (external link)

that and there aren't many other options to get to 400mm for this price :)

Nothing like water off a duck's back/head to make my night.

Nice shooting there, fella.
Every time I consider selling my 100-400, which is a sterling copy I might add, I see these shots and think I must be nuts. :lol:
