Sports Acrobatics Gymnastics British Tournament 28.11.10

1 12 2010

Covered the the event for British Gymnastics on Sunday.The drive down to Stoke was fine despite the snow showers.

Used a D3 and 200 f2 combination. The sports hall at Fenton Manor is not the best lighting. Was shooting at 2000 asa at 1/320s at f2. This was fine for the balances but almost impossible to freeze any of the tempo routines. Looking at upgrading to the D3s for the extra stop that would give in this situation.

Also is anyone using the new  Nikon 200 f2 vr 11 lens?I bought my original 200 f2 lens right after the Athens Olympics and have used it at every gymnastics competition since then. Is the new one worth the extra cost to upgrade?
