Hello all

What is the best allround sport (indoor and outdoor) on a croped camera. 70-200 tamron or sigma or the 135mm f/2 from canon?



Assuming you can sit near or move around the edge / end of the floor without a doubt the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens.

Its image quality is superb. Its focus is fast and accurate. Its large aperture allows fast shutter speeds even in poor light.

Now if you're up in the stands, that depends on where in the stands.

Those pictures looks stunning, but they are taken in a profesional sport place, at least the volley ball shots, I also am not YET (:P) that good to have costomers, what means i can not stand realy close, okej, I shoot not at the highest division, but still, i need to take sometimes shot from out the stand, what means i need a little longer lens

Can't speak for all those pictures, but, these were taken in a poorly lit high school gymnasium, seated in the first row of pull out wood bleachers, just one side of the net.
