Thx to all for your kind comments.

I really am pleased with the 800e for soccer.

I know some folks doubt it due to slow FPS, but I've never relied on FPS because IMO even 10 FPS is too slow to catch balls on head etc.

Apart from the incredible cropability, the really neat improvement in the d800's (and d4) that I like best is the AF module that works up to f8. The f5.6 sigma didn't focus fast enough for soccer with the it's about as fast as the 200-400.

What a great lens the sigmonster...what reach with the d800...

Here's a 100% crop of far goalie.... full length of field plus a little

A sigmonster shot of the moon for the heck of it...66% crop if i remember right..
