I want to shoot a HS football game and it will be my first time doing so. The varsity game will be at night, but looking at other photos, it seems like there's decent light for a HS field. I'll be using a D500 with a Sigma 120-300/2.8 on a monopod. I have a 1.4xTC, but guessing the loss of a stop and AF hit in darker conditions may not be worth it. I can also bring a 24-70/2.8 on a D750. As far as positioning, what is optimal and what I can I expect to have access to? The games get coverage...

In my first attempt to cover my need for ~500-600mm reach for motorsports & aviation i went for the highly praised 120-300 OS HSM (2012 model) + the Sigmas TCs. After almost a year of endless tests , discontentment and inspection and maintenance travels even to Sigma Japan with actually minimal final field use (just couple of pics) because of focus & tracking issues, i am coming to the conclusion that this combination DOESN'T WORK for action / sports photography. The AF performance of this...

Which lens calibration product would you suggest for calibrating teles (Sigma 120-400, Sigma 120-300, +TCs, Tamron 150-600, etc) for >50m distances on Nikon bodies (more specifically D7100, D300) Thank you --Nickwww.flickr.com/nickdelhanidis/setsmonographix.deviantart.com/gallery
