Possibly the dimmest lights I've encountered. I was at ISO 6400, f/2.8, 1/800 for most shots, and some at 8000. To the naked eye, the white shirts looked gray.

An "accurate" reproduction of a scene and a good photograph are often two different things.

    Jack, great work here. The action shots are nicely captured and you get a great "feel" for the rough and tumble nature of the game. Your style makes them appear to be playing at a very skilled level. I only get a sense of the high ISO settings if my eyes stray away from the action and look at the background in the photos but it doesn't distract from the quality of the shots. In #11, the mismatch in apparent size is striking. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks! I like 11 too. Crazy that it is ISO 8000. In my first DSLR, I avoided going to 800!

    Jack--lover your sports work. Interested in your camera advice, and sorry if this is a hijack but specifically interested in your 7DII advice. I shoot sports and portraits with a 1D3 now. I am thinking of going to a 7DII and a used 5DII. Covers both topics maybe a bit better, plus gives me 2 camera option for sports and extends reach of my 70-200 and 100-400. Thoughts? Or go with one 1DX instead? or one 5D3 instead? Thanks,

    Thanks biker. I would definitely go for the 7D2 and 5D2 combo. The reach of the 7D2 gives you 112-320mm from your 70-200. In order to get that reach on full frame you either have to accept the slow aperture of the 100-400 or you're looking at an expensive prime. I'm having a ball with my 7D2 and 70-200/2.8II shooting football and I'm very glad to have zoom. The 5D2 is very capable, it would be a great combo.
