    the latest batch is awesome!!! a lovely mix of different timing, composition, and different postures. Chris' badminton skill has really advanced in the past few tournaments!

    love the look for the 85/1.2. what camera body are you using?

    Badminton skillz???..

    :p :p..no ler, my baddy skillz are still rated as F...:p :p

    Actually credit must be given to my good & diligent partner in crime, Daylightkiller. He was the one who captured pictures from Day 3, 4 and today's pics (which will be up shortly).:cool:
    *I'm just the one posting them up..:p

    I think it's best to ask him how and what experiences he gained from this endeavor..:);)

    Btw, for some reason, we just realized the auto focusing speed of the 85mm/1.2 is not as fast as the 200mm/1.8. The 200mm/1.8 is bar none, hands down & no doubt about it still the fastest AF lens in the business.:cool:

    As for baddy photog secrets. Unlike in badminton, where skills, desire and attitude are more important than equipments, sports photog, IMO, still relies 70% on equipment, 10% on position, 10% on lighting condition and 10% on luck.
    ..yep, as confirmed by another very reliable source, he (Casey) is the grandson from the Yoneyama (Yonex Corp.) patriarch..:)

    anyway, rest of today's pics will be up in a bit..

    I used to think monopod is easier on me but I find the movement is limited so I no longer use monopod, I use biopod....my left arm....
