    Shooting fast action and sports is probably one of the hardest types of photography even with a fast camera like a DSLR. My uncle is a retired photojournalist and has a super fast Nikon D4 that I borrow to shoot college basketball games of my brother. Even with the right hardware like the fast D4 it is still very difficult! Still life and portraiture takes talent and a good eye but action and sports photography is a whole other level for me because you have much less time to compose and frame your shots. My all time fav was your wide angle shot of kids playing volleyball, that was amazing. You have a knack for it Mr. Salaryman. Good work.

    Many thanks Seven Leaves for heaping on the praise! Besides the super high end DSLRs like your uncle's D4, The 5Dm3 has probably one of the best tracking AF in the market in the moment so that helps a lot. Although I try my best to follow the rules of composition, most of my most decent shots are usually captured mostly by chance by being the right place at the right time. :)

    To be fair, stills and portraiture takes a different set of skills and sensibility to action photography so they are not necessarily comparable.

    After shooting with the Nikon D810/ Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 exclusively yesterday here are some observations.

    1) The D810 is fast. I don't know about the D3s/D4/D4s coz' I haven't tried those but I feel that the D810 is the fastest full frame camera I've used (D800 and Df). Everything is just snappy!

    2) The AF is fast, really fast. Not only is it fast, it is also quite accurate, most of the time, any error in focusing is due to the user not the camera. I guess I should have familiarized myself with it more.

    3)The D810 is quite "polite". While others love the loud clack of the mirror/shutter mechanism, I prefer the more damped and more vibration free mirror/shutter design in the D810. It simply means I get more keepers even with tricky handheld shutter speed.

    4) No need to talk about the image quality and dynamic range. As one online reviewer said, the IQ and DR is good enough to render some entry to mid level medium format camera obsolete. It is very very good! Enough said. :)

    Wow congrats, probably one of the best camera you can get for pure IQ, short of medium format. DXO rates it even higher then the venerated a7r. In his review Tony Northrup says that the AF on the new D810 is even better then the legendary AF of the 5D mark III. Now thats something. Not sure about how silent the shutter of the D810 is but the 5DmIII's silent mode beats even the soft click of the Fuji cameras except for the x100s.

    PS. Luma na ang D4, D4s na kaya :D

    Some more sports shots from my 5D mark III
