How did you manage to focus properly in the second? Did you prefocus to a fixed distance?
I love my 85mm 1.2 but always thought the focus was too slow for sports. I took it to a high school basketball game last night and was very happy with the performance. I just love this lens.
Reason I'm asking, I'm going to go to a basketball game in about two weeks and wondering what to take along with my 5D3: 70-200 2.8 IS II or 85 1.2 II or borrowing a 135 2.0.
[edit:] I'll be up in the stands, unfortunately I have no information as of now about the distance to the field and the lighting conditions, but maybe the 85 lacks a bit of reach? Would the 100 L Macro also be a possible alternative?
