I'm from Brazil, so I played a lot of football in school. Actually I was goalie and has suffered a few strokes of the ball, but fortunately none in sensitive parts. 6D is obviously not suitable for the hardness of sports photography, but can be a "disposable" body to stay in a place with high risk of total loss along with Samyang 14mm. I would not put 1DX + EF14mm L behind the goal, unless the equipment belonged to a newspaper and had insurance. In addition, WI-FI capability can serve for monitoring and remote release. After all, nobody wants to get in the way of the ball, is not it?I expected more resistance from the lens mount on a magnesium body which eventually supports lenses that weigh several pounds. In practical use, a 6D with Samyang 14mm would be more appropriate to stand behind the goal.
Guess you never played football. The player in question gave it quite a whack.
Also, a 6D wouldn't make any sense ... you need the fps that the 1D bodies offer to shoot a fast game like football.
Interesting. You could potentially have two or three 6D cameras and be trigerring them remotely via wifi and smartphones to increase the chance of getting the shot.
