p.1 #1 · 5D Mark III Case Settings for Football


I'm interested in hearing what case other people are using for focusing in football. I have a strange issue that my 5D misses focus very often on case 4, and I really have trouble getting tack sharp shots. It seems that case 2 (I've tested with all of them) has the highest keeper rate of all at my high school football games. I'm curious if imy 300 2.8 non-IS is the root of the problem since its date code is early 90's. Any one else using ancient 300 2.8s?

I went with Case 2 and was happy with my results. Haven't tried any other case, and I've shot soccer (MLS) and football (NCAA), both mostly with a 400 f/2.8. Tonight I'll be using the 5DIII with 300 f/2.8 IS for NBA. We'll see how that goes, but I'm sticking with Case 2.

Russ, Please post your NBA. BTW, I'm still drooling over your Olympic portraits. I've lost all sense of pride and have become an Isabella fan-boy.

Thanks for the response Russ. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I always felt a little strange using the "tennis" setting as the icon denotes, but whatever gets the job done I guess.
