70-200 f4 - to crop or use a 1.4 extender
Sep 10, 2012

Hi - I just started shooting youth soccer on a fullsized soccer field. Shooting times vary between 9AM and 12:30 PM. This past weekend I used my 70-200mm f4 with a canon 1.4 extender. Most images I cropped about 25%. I was fairly satisified with the sharpness of the images shot at 1/800, 5.6, however I am wondering if I could do better cropping say 40% and no extender shooting at f4. I think I may test drive it this weekend. Your thoughts? The combo was on a 7D.
