Nice shots - action in less than bright light.

That the 1.4 or 1.7 50mm lens?

Took this last night and am still trying to work out just how to shoot in these school gyms with the florescent lights and not enough of them. If I use too large a f/stop then the DOF is too short and if I get back the DOF then the speed goes away.

Yeah, it's a real problem. I guess I try to shoot a bit tighter so that what I do get is more in-focus. I shot a bit more tonight...

Looks like Tom's pict has brighter lighting setup than that of Rick. All these are good shots . Under such circumstance, there is always a compromise between DoF, f stop and shutter speed. Very challenging situation indeed.

I, too, have been struggling with the problem of lighting in school gyms. Following are my examples taken with an FA 50mm F1.4 lens. The first was taken at a nearby school. The second was taken in our gym which has yellow walls. The lighting is poor, and the yellow walls certainly don't help. Both photos have been edited.

I would like a lens with more zoom, but I'm afraid it won't be bright enough for our school's gym.

I apologize if my photos are too large. This was the first time I posted and I forgot to check the image size.
