I'm digging up my past a little here I know.
Will my 50D auto focus either the 300mm L F4 and or the 400mm L F5.6 quickly enough?
If any of you have seen my rugby shots, this is what I'm chasing. My son plays under 9's, so it's like following a bunch of bee's chasing Whinny pooh around, no structure to keep up with. (See my Flickr site for examples)
Dave DeGroot gave me some fantastic feedback on the 400, I've used the 300 handheld on an away trip and found it very comfortable and easy to use, I don't know if the IS will be of use on the 300mm due to setting it on my monopole and being in a crouched/knelling position.
The time of day is mainly harsh Perth sunlight, so I feel the 400mm will handle it fine.
But will my camera drive the AF quick enough? That's my main question. I need to improve my skills granted at this type of photography, but sincce I have almost hung up my boots and with my second son about to put them on, it's one I will activly seek to improve in.
I also intend to try to get some quality shots (Near Richards or Kiwi's) for my club to have on a large screen as a screen saver type of arrangement, and maybe even pick up the odd sale,, but that's far from a concern at the monent.
Any info is welcolme, thanks in advance.
