  1. Hi
    I see you use a Tokina 80-400 lens. I’m looking at getting one as looks like they are good bang for your buck. Question? Can you use it handheld for sports, say footy. What is it like – limitations etc? No IS is not much of an issue as shoot around 1/800 or faster. I use a Canon 55-250IS on a Canon 30D and find it’s crisp, but slow on autofocus and 250mm is not long enough, so was looking at the Tokina for more reach. Would appreciate your comments on the lens?
    Thanks

    1. Hey,

      the Tokina 80-400 has very nice colour, and extreemly sharp and solid build is awesome being so compact yet still with 400mm reach.
      limitiations – its also slowish with AF but fast enough if your panning, it has a 2 meter minimal focus length which can be annoying, but other than that its pretty nice, i want a 70-200 F4L but 200 is just not long enough for any sports. a monopod would be ideal with this lens but have no problem using it handheld.
      it is a tad soft at 400mm also, but used at 370mm its fine
