It was interesting to read the rugby football masterclass in this week's edition but why not say what was the equipment Nikon [presumably] loaned for the day and what the settings for the published shots (plus crop info.) were? The forum is occasionally asked about what to use for football and rugby so it is nice to see such a set. Potentially the set could help with difficult question of framing and distance for different focal lengths. The main question that comes in is what focal length to zoom in or to isolate players. It would be nice to follow up with a short article showing how one (or two stood a bit apart) players are framed by 70, 200, 300, 400, 600 focal lengths at different distances relevant to the sport - e.g 1/4 across the pitch, center pitch for someone stood on the touchline - both for the adult game and the schoolboy game. It would be useful to have something in the background too to illustrate the dof @ f5.6 which will be wide-open for most aspirants.
