    These photos were taken with a Nex-7 and a Konica Hexanon 135mm F3.5 prime lens. Ricky Rubio and Jeremey Lin brought in a good crowd to watch the Minnesota Timberwolves play the Houston Rockets.

    I shot at ISO 800, speed 1/200s to 1/500s. All photos were cropped by about 50% and scaled to 35% original size. I used the landscape creative style with +2 sharpness and +1 saturation. They are a little over saturated and would leave the saturation setting at 0 next time.

    The lens I used was the manual focus Konica Hexanon 135mm F3.5 with a Fotga lens adapter.

    You can't shoot sports with a NEX camera. Didn't you know that? :p

    Great job with these. :)

    Very nice shots, proving once again the NEX can do sports.

    very nice pictures!! As the above has said, the nex is good at sports, you just have to know how to handle it's limitations...you certainly do :D
