    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. :)
