Chris, don't you think it strange to see the players face in the background of your two baseball pics? We get carried away with bokeh sometimes.

I wasn't really that concerned with the outfielder in these shots . . . I was thrilled to death to finally get a sharp capture of a fielder making a play under the lights, and the fact that chubby acquires focus so blazingly fast under these conditions (the D4 helps a bit, though). I shot in shutter priority mode and set a shutter speed high enough to eliminate as much motion blur as possible . . . this left me with an aperture of f2 - f2.2.

My 200-400mm f4 can't handle these conditions nearly as well. Chubby just became my favorite "under the lights" lens!

Ai-s version, still trying to get a handle on it and the gloomy weather certainly isn't helping. All f/2...

Can you elaborate on the use of the lens, deadwolfbones? Any issues with focus, especially in low light?

The pics look great for bokeh and clarity.

thanks
Kerry

Oh, my issues have mostly been with handholding it. It's not exactly light, and the sun hasn't been showing its face much. It's hard to get sharp shots, even at f/2, if I want to stay at base ISO. Otherwise it handles like a dream.

might as well ask here. I was cleaning out my camera closet and came across a 2.0 foot. I sold mine a while back and must have left the RRS foot on when I sold it. Is the stock foot worth anything? Seems silly to post on the B/S forum

#1 just makes me laugh and cry at how damn amazing the DOF and sharpness is. Love #4.

Man why won't it stop bloody raining so I can actually take mine out for its first proper session. 6 days now and it hasn't left the house!

a couple from a church Christmas show.

terrible lighting but f/2.0 with VR is very helpful.
