I watched the ‘Clash Of The Titans’ exhibition match between Rafal Nadal and Richard Gasquet last night at Stadium Melawati, Shah Alam, Malaysia. Armed with my EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS, I was hoping to get lots of keeper shots as the ticket I got was very good. Lighting was a problem and I couldn’t use flash. I had to bump up the ISO way up there between ISO 1600-3200 so that I can get the shutter speed above 1/1000th and even that was a problem. I didn’t want to go down to f/2.8 as I wanted to make sure features are sharp. One thing though, noise reduction would beautifully on the Mark III.

All images taken with Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS. No flash was used.
