I plan to buy the Rebel XT + EF 100/2.0 for indoor gymnastics.

Inthat specific location, a 35mm film SLR camera 135mm,ISO400, 1/4 aperture, I go to a maximum 1/60speed and the pictures look nice except movement blur.

Conclusion was: I need more than 135mm to frame it better, ISO up to 1600 (better 3200) and 1/2.0 aperture for more than 1/500 speed.

Now the question: if I use such a large aperture 1/2.0, with this specific lens EF 100/2.0 is the focus fast to lock precise at 15m distance?

I will get out of focus? :??Focusing at 15m with that lens,the DOF will be around 2m. Is this enough for fast moving gymnastics?

I choose the EF100 for price reason. I could not afford a zoom with that large aperture or even a longer prime (ex EF135/2.0).
