...to more tests of this kind - as your running/jumping kids are exactly right target - at 50mm and not too large shooting distance, and in a light good enough to fire at higher SS - unfortunately, wide open at 50mm with this PZ means f/5.6, so little chance to see a truly narrow DOF results of fast action N6 shooting

any chance for you to rent/borrow 22-210?

best, jpr2

I'm tempted to rent one, but can't justify pulling the trigger unless I have a dual purpose/event :-).

Actually, I think a fast prime (i.e., 50mm f/1.8) would approximate the DOF test for fast action testing -- I'm considering picking this one up.  The problem -- it's that loud silver & apparently the AF drive motors for this lens are not the fastest from what I've read on these forums.
