I won an auction to shoot sideline/endline at a MLS game here in Seattle. Having done this before, I was slightly limited in what I was shooting, but I'm going all out for this one. The dilemma I'm having is what to rent to augment my existing kit... At this point here's what I have coming from Roger (in red) with my existing kit:
Monopod with Manfrotto T bar and RC4 QR plates with:5d3 with 300/2.8IS
and 1.4xII tele
1d2 with 70-200/2.8
Spider belt with:
Right Hip 7d with 24-70/2.8
Left Hip T4i with Tokina 12-24/4
with a 40/2.8 and 17-55/2.8IS for fun
Now, to start with, I'm not even sure the placement of the 5d3/1d2/7d is correct, but I think that with the range on the 300 and the wide of the 24-70 (28-112) are going to be the main image makers, but the 1d2 is getting lots of range in the middle of things.
Now the fun, if I get ambitious, what would you 'upgrade' from this?? I've considered a second 5d3/7d, 70-200/2.8isII, 300/2.8isII even going so far as a D800e with a 200-400 or a 14-24/4. In a really bad dream I'd have a H5d-80 for some amazing shots, but my bank isn't that crazy with me...
The location is Qwest Field / CenturyLink field (just hosted Monday Night Football) so the lighting is as good as it'll get. Time frame is beginning of November, and being Seattle, there is a chance of rain possible... I've been digging around my existing photos from a few years ago trying to notice a pattern in MM, but it's all over the board, and some of it I cropped down. Oh, and we get some great support so there'll be plenty of crowd shots:
