... to fully enjoy it, I spent some time mastering my focusing skills (remember, no automatic focus).
It forced me to think spatially. I had to understand where the focus area is before a runner comes and start taking pictures once they enter it.
Another tip. As you take continues shots, makes sure that they are written fast enough so there is no delay. Get the fastest card that is available to you and set the image size to medium or small.
It's ok to have a good shot in a smaller file...
Clearly, I have plans on expanding the collection.
I've ordered a 500mm lens.
I want to get a 50mm/1.4 lens for portraits. They are quite expensive, but give a very shallow dept of field. 28mm/2.8 is also in my wish list.
Importantly, I want to get a telecoverter, it's an addon that increments the focal length of an existing lens.
