Lacrosse and DS50-200/K100D (6 imgs)
Apr 18, 2007

There are questions from time to time about using the K100D for sports and whether people need to get the more expensive fast lenses out there. I just got the DA50-200 and am finding it a great lens for sports. I have gien up some reach, from my Tamron 28-300, but the quality seems to be much better to me. I may alternate throughout the year and try them both. But, the lightness and quickness of the 50-200 make me love it!

I fixed the shutter at 1/350 sec, which gave me f6.7 on most of the shots because it was very cloudy last Saturday here. Mainly the range was in the 160-200mm range. I was either in the stands or on the sideline. From the sideline, there is a fence, a short area, then the field, so I could not be right on them)

Getting caught up in the air, but just getting a pass off. (Feet are off the ground)

Scoop and run. (I was up in the stands on this shot)

I like this one also. I may try spot exposure on these turf fields. If the sun comes out, it shines off the fake grass. (I was also in the stands on this shot)
