Quote:Like all people shots, you kinda want his face most in focus. Or the thing they are busy with which makes the shot important (a ball, a racket, a golf club). Not bellies.
I think that if you were shooting Tiger Woods (or Roger Federer) and you had his belly in focus, his face would be well and truly in focus because you would be so far away that even at f1.2 the depth of field would be deep enough.
Anyway, we are swinging way off court now.
I was wrong about Nikon ever coming out with a "D400" but I am very happy that they have come out with something even better than what most people had thought possible.
And please, let us not get into how mirror-less full frames have such and such better features. This is a DSLR for pros or at least wannabee pros.
I don't cover sporting events as a pro but I have done enough to know that to get the job done you need:
1. Focus speed and accuracy
2. That the camera needs to work in all sorts of conditions
3. It can take a fair amount (lots of) bumps
4. Battery needs to last at least half a day
5. 5-6 frames per second with plenty of buffer in reserve (is enough for me)
6. Great straight out-of-the-camera JPEGs (People kid themselves with how important RAW is)
7. Great OVF
I'm sure there's more but "features" such as U1 and U2 are only for people like Ken Rockwell.
