Really depends on the light and the ISO you use. I shoot in manual exposure and will choose an aperture that gives me the depth of field that I desire. I was using anything from f2.8 to f5 depending on my location and type of shot I'm going for. If you are in really bright light (I wasn't) then you won't get apertures so wide and still a slower shutter speed so will need to have a narrower aperture.

Thanks Tom, it was nice to get out and shoot rather than just talking about it and helping others

Nice shots Mark, I rode a little motocross in my youth. In the days when Joel Roberts was king.
We had a motocross park about 15 miles from our home in Orange County Calif.
Good old days.

Hi Neddah,

I used both a Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 and Canon 70-200mm f2.8. You don't need to have such wide aperture lenses, especially if panning as you will use a narrower aperture. If you have the cash the Canon 70-200 f2.8 if not then one of the f4 varieties would be a great option.

Thanks for the quick reply , I was leaning towards the 70-200 2.8 non is , like everyone the is would be nice but to much, I think the 2.8 with a tripod for some kids school awards and alike would be handy , although I have been looking at the sigma , anyway I will bring this old topic up in the canon lens section
