Thanks so much for my baseball fix! I have shot High School and College baseball here in south Florida for years and I can tell you this is an excellent shot. I love the look you captured in the Tampa players eyes---that is where the story is.

You certainly have the right camera for the job. I used my 600mm and my 200-400 (both Nikon lenses). I see you used the 80-400 how do you like it? I heard it was a bit slow on the auto focus so I'd be interested in a first had report.

Hope you go another baseball shotfornext month. :-)   Posted: 03/14/2020 19:17:54

Thanks Larry and Beverly. I have the more recent version of the 80-400 and it has a motor in the lens so it is pretty quick. I find it more versatile than the 200-400 in sports situations when you can move around.   Posted: 03/27/2020 23:16:01
