I like baseball games that happen during the week, its a license to get out of the office. Baseball is hard to shoot in my opinion because you never know where the ball is going. I just finished basketball season and basketball is predictable. The ball is always hopefully ending up in the goal. I caught the second baseman fielding the ball and it was in focus. I often get there with the framing but the focus doesn't always catch up so fast. I use the original Nikon 80-400 VR lens to shoot baseball. I have a telephoto vision so that lens works well. I should say it works well on a full frame camera it is moderate lens on a crop sensor body. Nikon has just released an updated 80-400 lens with the new VR technology and the fast autofocus motors in the lens. Its the perfect lens except for one thing. It costs $2700. That is a $1000 more than we paid for the lens we have. For the time being I better just be quicker on the focus trigger.
