Hi all,
Having a bit of trouble with my 70-200, and I'm not sure if anyone else is dealing with the same problem. I shoot lots of hockey, and have been having mixed results as of late. A bit of investigating with NX reveals to me that when the focal length is at 200mm, the lens will focus behind the subject. I didn't believe it until I checked with NX, but it's very clear that the goalie's mask (focal point) is out of focus, and part of the net behind him is clearly in focus. At the time of the photo, the goalie was completely still, shutter speed was 1/1250th of a second. Other focal lengths seem ok, to me.
The only other thing that I notice, is that the zoom ring seems to "stick" a bit at 200mm if you're not really careful not to bump the stop, and requires a little extra twist to get it unstuck. By the way, the temps in the rink these days are well below freezing, -8 Celcius by estimate. Does it sound like I'm off to Nikon?
Thanks in advance.
