Anyone use a D4 with 200-400F4 for nighttime high school football?
Sep 14, 2012

I have a D4 and the 200-400 F4 that I primarily use during the day for field sports, and some wildlife photography. I have been asked to shoot a high school football game under the lights in the evening next week. I know the preferred lens for night time football is the 400mm 2.8, but has anyone tried nighttime football photography with the D4 and the 200-400/F4 lens? Will the higher ISO capabilities of the D4 be enough to get some usable nighttime shots at F4? Just curious what other's experience is with with night time stadium photography with this combo. How high did you need to crank the ISO to get good action shots at a shutter speed of 1000 or higher?

Thanks in advance!
