It's been a long while since my last gymnastics post. Thought I'd post a few from last weekend in San Jose. Shot mostly with D4s, a few with D800 and D3s, and a mixture of 400, 200/2, 70-200, 200/2, 24-70 and 85/1.4. NPS was onsite to provide equipment loans so I took the new 85/1.4 AF-S for a spin. It is every bit as sharp as the 200/2, and focus is a lot faster than the older version. It also allowed me to get closer and underneath the podium. Bad news is now I want one and will set me back a few gs...
