| p.1 #12 · Best lens for shooting professional soccer? |
Some good advice, but I particularly like what Jim said: soccer is a great sport to shoot, but when covering it with a long lens (>300mm), it's way too easy to get caught inside the viewfinder, and miss the real action that's developing outside your field of view. For this reason I always try to shoot with both eyes open so I can see the action outside of the camera, and sometimes I even will pull both eyes away from the viewfinder then swing the camera/lens into use to grab the play, moving my eye to the viewfinder to focus and shoot. The same advice can be given for shooting "American" Football, BTW.
