Good article by Barney. It has taken me in year 2005. Indeed using 1D mark II was a great experience for me. I used it in England cricket team tour of Pakistan in 2005 as I was working for Reuters. Very good results specially its auto focus was much much better. I had a couple of pix of that cricket series in my gallery at this dpreview site.
Thank Barney.

Not impressed. Canon and Nikon are far better and have showed incredible results in the sport events. The photographer who took these sample images in seemed not to be familiar with sport coverage. So the resulting images are poor. A professional sport shooter might give us some better results by using this camera. On today's advance technoligies, I remember my 1970's twin lens reflex cameras. I had a Yashican-d ( a Japanese cheap version of Germen flagship Rolleiflex of that era). The fastest available speed in that camera was 1/500 sec. With no motor drive concept at that time one has to rely his judgement to click at a time when action of a sport event reached its peak. If missed you had nothing to show your editor. Have a look of two sport events of that time where you had a chance to only click once and the action was over. Please look Soccer and Swimming event in BW here: https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/5302851839

Nice shot. A bit on in camera composition - concentrate in the view finder to compose the shot (although one has no time in such situations) like we do in sports photography. Anyhow its indeed a nice shot. Congrats!!!!

Being an active photojournalist for the past 40 years I have come across many situation like these, bomb blasts, urban riots and others. My job is to photograph the situation. My newspaper or news agency employers are paying me to photograph the situation where they have sent me. I think I am there to produce and record what I see. Its not my job to help people and throw away my camera and when your Editor asks in the evening where are the pictures and I tell him the good job I have done trying to save a person from the mob, he will fire me. So we photojournalists are observers not the saviors of the victims.

Thanks for nice tips.
Being a photojournalist, I happened to cover several assignments from military helicopters like earthquake, floodis and military exercises and agree with you the choice of lenses your suggest.
