Edward, you forgot the 400 f2.8L IS II in between the 300 and the 500 ...  :P

Your right, how could I have forgotten the 400, owned 2 of them, it's a definite sickness.

Holding on the Phase for another month, give Canon a chance to release a 45MP 1D, Ha Ha Ha.

1Dx, 70-200/2.8, ISO 640, 1/250@3.5 with 8 speedlights set up to light the court.

jim....some good action shots, but i'm not sure about the "flash look" in these photos. 

i use my 1dx to shoot indoor sport without flash all the time...iso 3200-5000 still great IQ.

Yes, the 1Dx is good in gyms at 3200-5000, but what it's not good at, nor is ANY camera is cycling lights in a gyms.  I would say the 85% of the gyms I shoot in have some type of lights that cycle or mixed lighting types which just makes it a pain in the ass to get something done quickly for a deadline.  That's where flash comes in and fixes the issue.  Some gyms look better than others due to locations I can mount my lights.

And just to give you an example of a bad gym around here..  at 6400, 2.8 the shutter speed would had been 1/60.  Yes.. 1/60.  I asked the guy that was shooting with a 1D3 what he did and he said, "Wait for everyone to  stop moving" and even then his photos were underexposed a good 2/3 of a stop.    If I had the luxury of shooting in a D1 gym that was lit properly, maybe.   But even with state finals coming up next week for boys basketball I'm considering asking my Photo Editor to rent the house lights at Bankers Life for $300.   

With flash and sports, you either love it or hate it, and for me, the parents absolutely love it, because nobody else does it.  But as I said, gyms that I've never been in (like the images posted here) can cause issues with flaring or having a direct flash look.  However, some gyms that I work in on a regular basis, that isn't such an issue.

Had a chance to shoot some pictures of my grandson playing in the yard today. I liked the expression and the sharpness on this one. 200 f2, ISO 500, 1/1000 sec. @ f2.

Gary, it is funny you post that, only yesterday I saw this kit for the first time and wondered how easy it would be to make a similar setup using a home brew approach, using  a white one of these which I use a lot for product photography.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Great portraits and the large aperture really makes the eyes pop. I'm wondering about your WB though, is it on purpose the cooler color tone? For the little girl, I would have preferred a warmer tone. I find the ColorChecker passport awesome for easy and accurate color managing.

I was just a question if you chose the cooler color on purpose. I took your jpeg and ran it through a quick Lightroom run, and just a simple tune of your own very nice picture.
