Lens is as advertised! Great color even in low lights, super fast focus. I didn't want to return it! Shot these at the Sacramento Republic FC game Saturday night and the River Cats-Albuquerque game at Raley Field on Sunday.
I'm not much of a sports photography fan, but these images are gorgeous. As one who appreciates sharp focus, I laud you on an excellent job.
That is an awesome lens. Try it with the Mark III doubler and it's 600mm with very minor degradation.
Wow they are sharp photo`s i bet you want one of those lens in your kit.
yes, it was tough to give up. Amazing quality in all types of light. The first version of that lens is supposed to be very good as well, and a lot cheaper
I don't like sports but these are great.
Wow! Those are really sharp! Love them all. I'll have to check out that lens. Cheers.
Very good action shots Steve.
Thanks everyone. I would recommend the lens, if you can afford it! I can't, unfortunately . . .
Great shots !!
What camera were you using?
Any PP ? If so, what did you do?
Using a Canon 7D Mark II. Some PP for noise, exposure and sharpening, but nothing major.
This Canon 300mm f/2.8 prime is a proven lens in its own class. Known for action shots. The proof is in the pudding. Great shots.
Wonderful action shots, Steve! You're right about that lens..it did good, and so did the man behind the lens!
