    Soccer

    Someone wanted to know how the 150mm/2.8 Macro lens would do in sports, soccer specifically, and off I went to get some shots.

    Overall it was up to it though I had to twist the focus ring a bit after having focused on something close and then immediately to infinity. But for dedicated sports work, I personally would not recommend it.

    Also took along my long neglected 70-300 and it proved much more versatile.

    First time taking soccer shots so you have obviously seen better.

    Just thought I would share the experience.

    1. 150 is too long, legs got cut off.

    Looks like a nice set of shots. Love the angle of the last one

    Thanks Myra.

    Next time (if ever) will cut down the aperture to get more of the players into focus.
