    Great shots.

    It is very difficult. They run too fast. I find it's easier if you trip them first.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    What sort of focus method were you using? I've found, with the little bit of action shooting I've done with the Df that I use back button focus for everything and I use the 9-point grouping of focus points in the center. I've gotten some decent bird in flight photos that way as well as less challenging stuff.

    These shots look great, BTW, but if you're having problems with focus tracking, just suggesting...

    Ray,
    Single point continuous within the center group. Once I switched to spot metering, things got better.
    Was using the 1993-1997 80-200 ƒ2.8.....

    Couple more...

    Retro setup or not... the results speak for themselves. They used to do sports photography in the 1990s, too. :bravo-009:
