When you issue a challenge..
In reply to wingover2, Apr 30, 2013

Be prepared for acceptance of the challenge.  When you say "good for sports" in terms of a camera system, to me it means response and ability to isolate a subject and make it the focus of an image.  Your images are good but unfortunately due to large DOF and short focal lengths, the subjects are not isolated.  In some shots the ball is difficult to see at all.  You have good technique and the subjects are in focus, but so is most of the width of the court and to some degree, the fans in the background.  Remember- the longer the telephoto the better the isolation even at moderate apertures.

So I wouldn't say your system can't do sports, but there are ways you could improve the photos here with the same system and longer lenses.  However, it would still be difficult to match the isolation of larger-sensor systems paired with fast telephoto lenses.

Happy Shooting!
