Tough shooting conditions--rainy afternoon, so there wasn't much light added through the windows of the field house. All shots with the K100 and FA 50mm f/1.4.

My junior daughter handing off in the 4 x 400 meter relay. Overall it was a great day. Both our girls and boys teams took first in the meet and the Gopher Hockey team came from behind to beat Air Force.

It reall is nice having the speed. I wish, I wish, I wish I could afford something like a Sigma 300mm f/2.8, though.

Really love your photos! Shooting inside does have advantages - you don't have to worry about shadows on the faces. I know what you mean about wanting a 300mm 2.8, but would the extra reach be worth the extra weight? I wonder if getting something like the 77 Limited wouldn't be better - you wouldn't lose as much for speed, get some extra reach and still have something very light. I was surprised how much trouble I had framing things (the hurdles) with the 300mm when I got closer to the action. And the DOF was really small with f4. Cool when it worked, but I didn't get much for keepers (going to keep trying, after finals and spring break, that is).

Rick, I enjoy watching high school kids compete. Its a lot more fun than the pros and more unpredictable than college. Thanks for the pictures.

You might do better with spot metering for quicker and sharper focus. The pics are good but looked a bit washed out.

EDIT: Nevermind you used manual focus. My bad.
