    Finally college hockey started so I went to a local game and brought several lenses with me.

    For the most part I took pictures with:


    Rokkor MD 135mm 2.8 and 300mm 4.5

    Hexanon 200mm 3.5

    All in all, I am happy with my results from the not so good location I was. Next game will be on a bigger place so I will see what works best. It was fun to take tons of pics to figure out what works or not.
    Thanks for watching!

    BTW, Picture 4 and 5 (from top to bottom) were taken with the SEL50 but using the Sony 1.7TC as a fun test. On the one I did not crop much you can see the blurry effect that surrounds the whole image. :D

    Some great shots!
    But I'm more impressed that you got in with a removable lens camera & a bag of lenses!

    Oh you bet! :)

    Thanks amigo! :)
    So is not common to get authorized to do that? Maybe because it was not a lot of people there since most people were at the big football rivalry game which was at the same time. I was carrying my slingshot bag with a case for my 300mm and a tripod and not a single question about it :D
