need some good fast advice lens for a rainy day at the ball park

I once sat about 25 rows from the field at Fenway (smaller stadium) and used an FA*300. It was good for action, but you might want to also bring the 16-85 for wide angle if you can change it out of the rain.

Thanks for the input. Naturally these look much better on my phone screen - on my desktop the problems are much more apparent.

De-centered 16-85?

I bought a used 16-85, and it's giving me odd results. I took several pictures with it, not really paying much attention to my technique, which is generally fine. Most of the results are ok, like this:

On the other hand, I also got several like these:

35mm, f/4.5

85mm, f/5.6, approx. 5 ft away

68mm, f/5.6, approx. 5 ft away

All are converted to jpeg only, except the Ferrari, which I cropped. Is it possible these blurry results are just the product of bad technique, depth of field issues, or does the lens seem to be defective?

The HD D FA 24-70 is $991 at B&H, which I think is pretty good.

B&H is crazy right now.

The code is lens10.

FYI, it’s for select (mostly older) lenses. There’s an eligible DA*50-135 for $499 before discount.

Bummer about sales tax though.

Any more info on this? When I add that code it takes one cent off my total.

Apparently they charge sales tax as well now, at least to Connecticut.

FYI, I ordered a “like new” used KP from Adorama through their Amazon store for $687. I was told via email that it was rated D, which means it’s a demo. They also told me it doesn’t have the grips, but I’ll have to see when it gets here. So anyone interested should check Amazon.
