Hi

I'm going to the Pistons basketball game. Which lens should I bring for NEX-3 ? I have kit lens 16mm and 18-55, rokkor 50mm 1.7 and tamron 135mm 2.8.

My seat is 5 rows behind the basket.

Any recommendations welcomed.

Unless you are really experienced with pre-focusing, the 16 and the 18-55 are your best bets, and don't expect spectacular shots. How did you score the 5th row? I'm going to the cavs game and I'm in row 13 in the Q in Cleveland on the 29th.

However; you really could pre-focus on the basket with the 135 and take lots of test shots with them before the game. Your date and/or wife wants to know what you are about to do.

JAW
