Doug these pics worked out great for you, congrats!

The EXIF is stripped from the pics; what ISO & exposure settings were you using if I may ask?

The AF of the D610 sure seemed to keep up!

The most recent ones were shot at about iso 1000-1600 as I recall. The lenses were wide open or stopped down slightly. AF-C, I used the cluster of 9 focus points. I thought the AF did very well. Sometimes the first shot in the series was out of focus, but the camera quickly caught up with the action and did a good job staying with the subject.


If you were at iso1000-1600 the lighting must fantastic for a HS gym. Most I've been to are in the 3200-6400 at best.

I shoot grammar school BB. I can believe ISO 1600 if shooting wide open on 85 mm.

True.  I had to look back on lens used.  85 1.8 for some.
