p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D800 and Sigma 120-300OS 2.8 and a world record


A few pictures from Friday evening at the Van Damme Memorial (one of the diamond league shows) in Brussels.

I took a 'light' but serious combo with me, the D800 with the Sigma 120-300mm (new OS version) - maybe I should have taken the 200-400VR, but it didn't fit in my small bag . I used the lens @300mm and @f4.0 most of the time to get some DOF. I was not at the right place to take the best pictures (20th row close to the departure), but I could bring back a few decent pics.

First a few pics of the stars of the evening, the American Aries Merritt who set a new world record of the 110m hurdles and Usain Bolt, the fastest man on earth.

Cool photos, Gugs. The photo of the fems is quite something. The muscle definition of the 2 in focus is incredible.

Were you using a monopod?

Thanks Kerry.

I have shot everything from my seat, hand held. The 120-300OS is not that heavy, and well balanced on a pro body. I wouldn't be able to do the same with a 200-400VR for instance.
Maybe I'll try the 200-400VR on a monopod next year...
