Thoughts, ideas, help?? (telephoto photography)
Aug 4, 2014

I love photography but am far from being professional.

I have also just started racing outrigger canoes.

I own a NEX5n (and love it) with a 55-210mm lens.  It is an okay setup, but I am getting greedy for more range and better focus.

Here is an example of a shot from over the weekend:

I feel like this could have been so much more...

Would an A6000 have been better (with the same lens) but a higher resolution (24mb)?  Or would an A-mount adapter with a longer lens be better (I don't won any a-mount lenses)?

FYI:  this photo has been mildly improved in Photoshop (as much as possible without distortion). was shot in RAW, stopped down to F9 (I was told this was better), at about 1/400-500, and the full 210mm...

Ideas? Thoughts? Comments?

Also, don't have much in the way of "disposable" income, but could possibly invest for a good increase in quality...
