p.1 #1 · Football: 70-200 and 300 with 1D Mark IV and 7D. Which lens, Which body?


I am shooting Wisconsin at Ohio St. this weekend and I am looking for advice on which lens I should use on which camera body. This will be a night game, but the lighting should be excellent (I'm assuming, I've never been in Ohio St.'s stadium.)

I have a 1D Mark IV and a 7D as my two bodies.
70-200 2.8 IS (II) will be on one body, 300 2.8 IS (I) will be on the other.

If I put the 300 on the 7D, it will give me FF equiv of 480mm vs only 390mm with the 1D, which is nice to have the extra reach. But the 7D's image quality wont match the 1D Mark IV, and since I most likely will be taking most of my shots with the 300, I might want to put it on the 1D for the IQ plus the battery can push the AF faster .

Any thoughts?

300 on 1DIV - you still get the benefit of some crop. 70-200 on the 7D when you are in the end zone so you can be prepared to zoom to frame the action.

That's the way I shoot, 300 on the 1d3 and 70-200 on my 7d. Works well for most scenarios. You could also switch it up every now and then and see if you like the other combination.

I have both cameras & both lenses. I use them for action sports, motor racing etc, (even given its Aussie Rules Footy...

1D4 will kill the 7D for IQ & AF especially in low or artificial light.

I shoot the 1D4 with a 1.4III + 300f2.8 most of the time, then the 70-200f2.8II on the 7D or my 5D3,...better more reliable AF either way.

300 on the MkIV for long range shots, this combo takes the 1.4 very well, 70-200 on the 7D for in tight action...

There is also the tried and true method of bringing the equipment with you and trying out combinations on site before the game to see what you think.
