Has anyone used the a65 for photographing an air show ie fast jets and if so could they recommend a suitable long zoom that will focus really quickly with the a65.


The Sony 70-300G is my go to lense.Shooting jets is not as triky as shooting prop planes at a lower shutter speed so as to catch the action of the props so that it doesn't look like the engine stopped.
