A little basketball action with the 200 1.8 and TC1.4

These are all with a 1DM2N, 200L f/1.8 w/TC1.4, f/2.5, 1/500, ISO1600. This is all far end court action, shot from the opposite end baseline. You can get a feel for how touchy the depth of field is, even at f/2.5. The game was double overtime, and I shot it handheld... this setup for the far end, swapping with another 1DM2N and 85 1.8 on the near end. This is the defensive look, the other is the offensive look.

The background is what you pay for.

Drawing a foul... in action.

I can hold my breath longer than you.

Ahh!!!

That's mine.

I can fly!

Can't forget the cheerleaders.

Not a great picture... wish I was on the other end of the court, but this is a FOUL, baby!
