28-70 f2.8 question
Jul 18, 2014

My boys have a Tae Kwon Do tournament tomorrow. Usually at tournaments we are no farther than 5-6 feet from the action so I didn't bring the 70-200.  It is tight quarters and figure I will miss some shots. Although smacking some obnoxious parents with the lens "by accident" wouldn't be horrible. But I digress.

I brought the 50 f/1.8 and 85 f/1.8. I know that they aren't considered typical sports lenses but it is what I have and lighting is likely to be poor.

Additionally the owner of my boys school has a 28-70 f2.8 that he said I can use.

Any advice on this lens vs the others? Would it be a faster option and will I get better DOF at 2.8 vs 1.8? Hopefully I will get a chance to try them before my boys have to go on.
