Re: Nikon D7000 for Sports and Fast moving objects

I have been shooting action shots of my sons football and basketball teams for the past year with the D7000 and here are some things I have learned:

I have used this camera with the Nikon 70-200 predominantly and it's suited me well except for when I have poorly lit conditions, such as night football games, where you will need (IMHO) higher ISO capabilities than what I have gotten with this body.

The images at ISO 6400 are for the most part unusable.

With the above mentioned exception, I have gotten really good results shooting shutter priority, ISO 3200 and below, AF-On, 9 point, and center weighted metering.

You can view some of my work at the following link:

Hope this helps.
