Hi Everybody,
I would like to purchase a Nikon D50 and use it along with my Nikon 70-300ED lens to shoot some high school soccer matches next spring. Has anybody had any experience using the D50 to shoot fast moving sports yet. The digital advantage of +1.5 to the focal length of this Nikon zoom will be most helpful for sure but I am a bit concerned that the autofocus may not be fast enough. I am just shooting for family photos but would like to have a good chance to get some keepers. I have considerable experience shooting sports with my Nikon film cameras but this would be my first time with digital slr. I rarely use motordrive for lots of frames and prefer to shoot single shot style so I think the D50's frame rate should be just fine. Any sports shooters using the D50 please add your thoughts...I am looking forward to the digital experience.
Thanks all,
