    Its the next thing I buy.

    After using it, I really dont see a point for a 300 :hsd:

    I guess maybe the far court in basketball but I hat shooting people backs. Maybe hockey? IDK...

    400 is amazing.

    How'd you get the timing/focus down on the incoming pitch? Manual focus + firing like a madman?

    that's the one that stood out for me... from what I've read it's a VERY difficult shot to get.

    I love to be like, "Yeah its super hard and Im such a pro that only I can get them" but it was the first time I tried and I got what I wanted 5 out of the 6 times I pulled the shutter.

    Its about as hard as hitting a baseball is. If youve got bad timing I suppose it may be difficult, but otherwise... :dunno:

    That's why I didnt comment on the timing for that one.. honestly, to me it doesnt seem like it would be hard hard :dunno:

    a. because as long as you have a sense of timing/anticipation it shouldnt be THAT difficult

    b. because if you dont have the aforementioned skills, it's hard to miss ANYTHING at 10FPS

    I think a lot of people (read: everyone) overestimate what you get with 10FPS. If youre trying to get a ball-on-bat shot by hanging on the shutter, you can get a bunch of frames with no ball even IN the frame....Much less on a bat. 99% of the pictures I take are on single shot.

    What kind of field is that?! Why does the dirt in the first picture and in the batters box look like painted grass?

    Oh I know it's not like THAT, don't worry..

    just saying that Im sure if someone devited 10FPS to 3 innings, or like 30 pitches, they'd get pretty card close, especially if it just had to be sharp enough for online. (I'm talking about the ball.. it's easier to fake that one than to fake ball on bat contact)

    Good shot, anyway.

    The entire field turf. Its very unpleasant. I detest it. The only dirt is the pitchers mound. :hs:

    2.8

    As per the advice of some veterans, I tried shooting at f/4. The images are marginally sharper but the DOF increase is just enough to get me what I need without doing anything bad to the bokeh.

    Id definitely drop to 2.8 at night, but during the day, Id probably keep hanging at 4~5.6.
