~I like 3 and 4. 4 shows a great perspective with the runner trying to beat the throw. Nice work.~

I had just picked up the Nikon 70-300 $150,from the store to shoot a baseball game. Unfortunately, maybe fortunately the game was rained out on my way to the field. Well this is my first shot with the new lens. These are the 2 coaches that was at the field to inform me that the game was cancelled.

I like the shot and feel this lens would have done me a great job. At least I have have great confidence now when I get to shoot the game.

NIkon D70 with Nikkor 70-300 4-5.6

Shooting in Manual Mode

I plan to purchace a brighter lense for football season but, this seems to do well enoughfor baseball and track for the time being.

hmm, you will need a real fast lens if it's a night game.

Maybe an f1.8 prime.

2.8 will do great in this stadium.

It is NOT your typical highschool stadium.

Lighting is excellent.

10,000 seat stadium.

Away games are also well lit.

2 are college stadiums and the other is not great but, the 2.8 should do.

I just noticed that I am posting under two different names.

I must have registered once before and saved the password on my work computer and forgot about it.

Sorry if it confused anyone.

I just got a d-70 and was thinking about what lens to get . I am looking to photograph my kids high school sports and make some nice prints 8x10 -11x14 ,and was wondering if you have any recomendations? I shot softball, wrestling, basketball,and football, .I was thinking the tamron af28-300 f3.5-6.3 XR DI for softball ,but wasn't sure what would do good in the gym ? Would this lens work well as well,or do you recommedn something else? I don;t know if i would go as high as 1600iso since i am afraid of noise and havent experimented with it yet. Thanks Bill B

the problem with that lens is that to compensate for such a long zoom range, it takes the f stop right up to 6.3, which you really cant use for sports. See if you can afford a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 or equivalant.
