| p.1 #20 · Wider than 85 1.8 + fast enough focus for volleyball |
I've given serious consideration recenty picking up a 5DIII for the same reason....I would prefer to use my 70-200 2.8II for indoor sports stuff of my daughter, but it's just not fast enough (1/400 or faster) unless I jack my 7D's ISO up to ISO6400, which has given me mixed results...so I'm using a Sigma 85mm 1.4, which actually focuses fairly fast for indoor stuff, keeps the ISO's down, but obviously limits my flexibilty in framing, as well as making it so I don't have a whole lot to work with as the lens is typically down around f/1.6-f/1.8 to keep the shutter around 1/400 or faster.
Anyways, back to the OP's question- I'd try a 35mm 1.4, or maybe a Sigma 30mm 1.4. I find the Sigma 30mm & 85mm 1.4's to be a very useful combo on my 7D.
