Is there any sports photographers out there who can ansver if the 300 will be sufficiant to shoot soccer?
I currently use 5D MK III and also have a 7D.
Yes, it will be sufficient. More than sufficient, actually.
I know its a good pice of glass. I currently use 70-200 and feel i dont get close enough. And wonder if i should pull the trigger on a 300 or wait until i can find a 400 is i can afford.
I like to shoot football (american with the oblong ball) and I am afforded great leeway where I can stand. I shoot along the sidelines and towards the endzone. I use a 100mm f/2.8L and I'm quite fond of the results. Though I will admit when the subject is further away, the increased depth of field does take away from the photo. But I get around 1/8000 of a second shots and many are impressive.
