What Ideal Lens For Basketball Game w/ NEX-7?
Nov 5, 2012

I'm well aware that the NEX are not best suited for action sports but I want to take my NEX-7 to Barclay Center (Brooklyn) for a college basketball game this Friday. I am trying to decide which lens I should take and ideally would only like to take just one with me. I will be sitting courtside 3 rows from the court and on the far sideline (looking right ahead at the free throw's paint area). So given my vantage point and the following lens, which would be best?

  • Sigma 19mm f2.8
  • Sigma 30mm f2.8
  • SEL18200
  • Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.4
  • Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15mm f4.5

The Voigtlander's are the newest additions to my collection and I've really enjoyed them as manual focusing has opened doors for me.  But not sure if I can focus quickly enough for fast moving action on a basketball court?  I've only had the for about 3 weeks now and they are my first manual lens for any camera.
