 Post subject: Boxing - Suggestions?
PostPosted: Wed Nov 26, 2008 7:37 pm 
I have been invited to photograph a charity boxing event of Law Enforcement Officers.
It will have "professional lighting" with the ring well lit and the stands darkened.
I will have full access to ringside but oubviously no flash allowed.

Im wondering suggestions on equipment to bring:

NIKON D90 / D200 / D2x

NIKKOR : 18-105 VR(3.5-4.6) / 50mm 1.8

I don't know much about the bodies you listed, but i would choose on stuff like fastest Cont. shooting, best iso performance and the fastest/most reliable autofocus.
The compromise between those, would be your best choice i think,

I would leave the 50mm on the camera, and bringing the other as backup. If the 50mm is too snug, then you could take the D2x (If it is FF, i don't remember :))

Two bodie should be good enough, no what camera you choose they are all going to work really well, the thing to consider might be fps (for those knock out shots ;)

I think your not looking to crank up the ISO here too much, or its not going to be needed, because those events are really lit up.

The 50mm on one body and the other lens on the other one kind up to u

I'd take the D2X with 50mm and D90 with 18-105. If you need to bump Iso, the D90 will have the edge. With the D2X you will probably get better AF, so will benefit from the 50mm prime. my 2c.

I have an opertunity to purchase a Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG for under 300.00 and was wondering if this lens would preform better than my 18-105 3.5-4.6 ?

I guess until i see how low i have to go in Fstops i wont know....

Have you thought of maybe renting a lens for the night?

I think the Nikon will perform better and also have a better image quality.
