Those are some cool images, Andy.

Here's another from the vintage Zeiss Distagon 1.7/50mm.

Canon 10D (although it wasn't that cheap back then) with Canon non-L 75-300 IS.

Bought another 5D, a mint late serial number sleeper. Just couldn't resist.

5D + Helios 58mm f/2 ( the 44m-4 for any Helios connoisseurs). Body is from 2008, lens from 1984. Total package £270  ;)

Indoor sports usually needs the best performing gear. I'm currently shooting an ATP250 tennis tournament with gear less than 1/10 of the cost of the price of the usual gear around.
The usual gear that it's being used is 1D X II with 70-200 2.8 L II + 300 2.8L IS.
I'm using 1D mk IV with old 200 2.8L (with some fungus inside).

Example crops from JPEG, only contrast added.
