Volleyball with the D7100 and the Nikon 28-300
May 19, 2013

I had the chance to shoot a charity volleyball tournament in Santa Monica yesterday and decided to use my D7100 with my 28-300 full frame lens which I bought for the D800.  I was actually blown away by the sharpness and contrast of the lens and camera combo. Because the action in volleyball is  so unpredictable and fast, I decided to stay wide and hope that the cropped images would be reasonable sharp. It happens the the 24 MP sensor was really useful in that a small portion of the frame could still be enlarged to a decent sized image.  Here are some examples...

D7100 Nikon 28-300mm @56mm 1/640 Sec. F8 ISO 400

D7100 Nikon 28-300mm @68mm 1/640 sec f8 ISO 400
