Best Camera & Lens for Sports Video/Photography
May 24, 2014

My friend asked me for a suggestion as to the best camera/lens to record his daughter's outdoor soccer games.

Clearly, the GH4 is that camera, but best to someone new to all of this probably also means easiest to use and produce an end product. I was thinking that the A6000 might just be a good compromise, but what do I suggest for a lens? The 18 - 200 mm E-mount probably isn't fast enough to handle the autofocus demands of sports and the FE 70-200 mm is a bit too long at the wide end of the range for video.

I'm open to suggestions.
