Re: Part II

Nice pics Donald. Are you satisfied with the Sigma AF, sharpness seems good.

The Sigma is a must for serious APS-C user, IQ & built quality is extremely good for it price, AF isn't as fast as 70~200/2.8 but better than primes like 50/1.4, 85/1.4, 105/2.8.

Hey Donald,

Very nice photos.

Other than cost, do you feel the D500 50-100mm combo offers anything compared to using your D5 with 70-200mm? For indoor basketball and swimming that is.

Thanks.

Except cost, D500 combo has advantage in overall size and weight, but not significant, and I 'm afraid you will not have enough reach for swimming.

Nice series. Very cool fast zoom to freeze the action. I like the first one the most as you can see the determination and also the opponent over her trying to stop her.

It's just a matter of compromise between noise and detail.
