Spring College Soccer

Yesterday I was in Oneonta, New York shooting a Spring match between NCAA Division 1 schools Hartwick College and Niagara University. These Spring get togethers are basically scrimmages but there are legitimate referees, etc. This match even saw a couple of cards handed out.

Since I'm loaning out my EOS 7D I was using my 5D Mark III and, without the crop factor of the 7D, I used a 2X Extender with my 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. I used this setup for a daytime match last year but I wasn't really satisfied with the image quality this time. In addition to the focusing being slower with the extender, even in focus shots displayed more softness than I like. But unless your looking at full sized images at 100% you probably wouldn't notice.

Here are some examples:

400mm, f/5.6, 1/2000 sec., ISO 800

400mm, f/5.6, 1/1500 sec., ISO 800

380mm, f/5.6, 1/2000 sec., ISO 800

260mm, f/5.6, 1/2000 sec., ISO 800

400mm, f/5.6, 1/3000 sec., ISO 800
