NEX-6 and indoor sports?
Nov 11, 2012


I yesterday used my Nex-6 and the kit lens (16-50) for some indoor sports pictures. I did not have any issues with focusing, but had to use ISO 3200 in order to have 1/640 shutter speed. Even this caused pictures that were a bit dark.

I am waiting for the new 35/1.8 prime lens and wonder if there are any thoughts on using this lens or the existing 50/1.8 for indoor sports? I was yesterday trying out the kit lens with focal lenghts 35 and 50, and both would work. What about focusing speeds/accuracy of the kit lens 50mm/5.6 vs 50mm/1.8?
