135/2 for indoor volleyball is an excellent, cost-effective choice, especially if you are the 'team' photographer and have access to stand behind the coaches/bench, or in the corners. Excellent focal length on FF, and if it weren't for the 200/2 it would be my go-to lens.  I tried the 200/2.8 but since I already have the 70-200/2.8, it offered me little advantage. 100/2 will be a little short under most circumstances

Software & Accessories / Re: Who Adopted Adobe CC?

I'm another early adopter from LAST summer. Access to the entire suite, on multiple computers and synch'ing my preferences has been very useful, and when I had a laptop misplaced ( on location) I was able to borrow another, reload the programs, and keep working - PRICELESS. $600/yr ($50/month) sounds bad if you only use 1 or 2 programs, but to have Premiere/PS/LR and inDesign is kinda like leasing a Ferrari. Sure, I could own a Ford, sure other programs could get me there and get the job done, but I like my ride  :)

If you WERE shooting LOTS of motion (indooor sports, for example) with the 5dIII, what would be your 'ideal' workflow, settings? Output goal is both web viewing and DVD's.  I have Premiere PRO already and was debating value of NINJA 2 for HDMI output recording to improve upon my previous attempts (with disappointing results)

This rarely used substitute had just made a huge play in the state championship to help establish an insurmountable lead - here he is subbing back off the court, one can only wonder how proud / happy he really felt to make a play that counts...

Fantastic timing! What the beep happened here that made them look back with these expressions?

You can see the OOF ball being served to them.  This is the receiving team - I tried to catch the ball in flight coming toward them (away from me) before they started moving, but I was standing further from the ball / net than I wanted, and ended up catching the players in full focus and ball OOF instead. Actually came out better this way I think. 

Processed in B/W for effect....

Umm… Should his arm do that?  :o

At 1/1000, a lot can happen that we don't see in real time .  Always makes me appreciate how hard they hit. Some of his serves launch at over 60 mph...
