Re: Basketball

that f/1.4 sure does isolate the action from the background, it's a clean look.

well done.

I agree.

Donald, is that the Nikon 85mm? Is it quick to focus?

Interesting.  I shoot the 85/1.4 a lot, but never below F2.  I may need to give it a try at 1.4 now. Though that's some scary thin DOF.  Thanks for sharing these.

Yes, and that's good for those gyms with distractive background.

It's the 85/1.4G, not a quick focus lens but enough for basketball IMO, and the 85/1.8G should works too.
