Re: Define you meaning of "sports"...

What exactly are the photos supposed to prove? How exactly do you do "prove" a lower FPS can work fine?

Because there are 2 ways to get the right shot. One is to "spray" the action, in which case more FPS helps, another is to try to shoot at the right moment. In which case what matters is not FPS but rather AF & camera responsiveness.

I don't think there is a simple answer to the O/P. Depends on how each person's approach.
