Hi all-

Recently I took my d7000 and 55-200 to shoot an amateur hockey game. It didn't go as smoothly as I hoped, primarily because I couldn't get the camera to shoot fast enough.

Now, I know that the 55-200 was a bad choice and that it was focus hunting. I will definitely be bringing my 70-200 next time, and just deal with the weight. Problem is, I put the camera and lens on MF and was still a bit behind the action.

What I'm wondering is if the grip accelerates the camera's actions.. Would the shooting speed increase with the MB-D11? Would the knockoff be good enough?

Any thoughts people have would be appreciated. I have another practice game to shoot before the main event in december and definitely want to improve on my last effort.

Thanks!
