Sigma 30mm f1.4 basketball test shots

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so i finally got a chance to try my 30 1.4 at some basketball and it did pretty good. its no 35L which i have no doubt might have performed better under these conditions possibly. but im fairly happy with the results from tonight. it missed a few shots but that could be user error as on a few it locked focus on the ceiling, i was shooting center focus point servo

some dunks (some cropped but not by very much and some are un-cropped)

SPOT METER!!!!!!!!!

If you have ceiling lights in the shots, your meter will dick you nearly every time. Spot, AE lock, enjoy.

Live view meter it at 1/50th then change it to the equivalent for a good shutterspeed (unless your lights don't cycle, then just do it normally).
