Sorry, I proved your comment about, if you don't have an F/2.8 zoom indoors you have to go home, wrong. Clearly there are ways to work around various hurdles.

Yes you proved you could stay (and take bad pictures)....

Not sure why you posted a thread with lots of personal attacks.

"lots" being one?

I guess I really hit a nerve.  Clearly I was not posting great pictures,

Personal attack? You agree.

but only proving your statement wrong with the the first pic I could find.

What did you prove?

Again, sorry if I hurt your feelings.

I'll be ok.

Please understand the difference between "need" and "want".

I do. If you "want" a good picture, you "need" proper gear.

Just because you don't have the lens YOU "want"

I do have the lens I want.

is not a reason to, as you say, "go home".

I asked if you would "go home". You still haven't answered. Your "example" was in better light than I mentioned, and proved nothing.

A good photographer will use what he has available

A good photographer has nothing to do with this. We are talking about the ability to shoot action in low light. A good photographer brings a fast lens for this.

(see DPR story about Nick Laham as an example).  Also, do a search and learn there are numerous ways to isolate a subject besides using shallow DoF, as this will be very beneficial.

Numerous ways to isolate a sprinting athlete? Name one?
