    Had never taken this combo to an indoor sporting event so I was interested to see how it would perform. I was actually quite pleased. The game features UCF against So. Miss. One of the star players for Central Florida is Marcus Jordan(5), son of Michael.

    The 1st one and the last are my favourites, with everybody's looking at the basket while blurred, that's fantastic !

    I love this game :)

    Nice indeed, what shutter speeds where you using, e.g. for the first picture?

    Very nice! Do those those shooting conditions (indoor, quick movement, long distance) have as high a degree of difficulty as it sounds?

    Those are really nice. I guess you can't really call it low light, but the challenges of manual focus for that kind of thing are very real. Then again, sports photographers did the same for years in the pre-AF days. Nice job anyway!

    Is Jordan's kid any good?

    Marcus Jordan is alright ... not in the same caliber as his Dad .. just needs to improve his defense .. plays good offence.

    I hear ya! I love the VF-2 when shooting with my Zeiss 135mm/2.8.

    You captured some excellent shots there! Great work!
