More action shots from the non-action shooter. Same venue as the Challenger shots.  I had a great time as I was sitting with the Quebec contingent.  Rowdy crowd, very Davis Cup like atmosphere.

For a non action guy, you sure caught the action well David, great colours too, nice work indeed.

Thanks for the kind words!  Here's an obvious observation about shooting with a 5DIII at 5fps; I see just how many good shots I could have had with something like a 1Dx or a D5.  I know that "spray and pray" isn't the best way to shoot for most types of photography, but for this stuff and stuff like BIF, having 10 or 12 fps means that your chances of catching the ball on the racquet or catching the wings of a bird in that perfect position are much greater.

 

Maybe one day I'll rent a 1DxII just to have a bit of fun. :-)  I doubt that I'll ever be a person that does a lot of action shooting, but ya' never know.  Maybe when the 7DIII comes out with it 24 fps, I'll bite (I can start a rumor, can't I? :D ).

I like the second shot with the two gals in the background having a conversation.

Why not start a rumour David, regardless of what it is folk will buy into it, ya only need to look at click bait, crowd funding and the drip feed of rumours re the D850 to see folk getting all hot and bothered about this that or the other that is rumoured... and those arguing their belief in their rumour against another`s belief in a different rumour.... Whatever.

ME..?  I will wait till the real deal hits the ground and wait a while to see how it pans out through the "customer development" stage, before carrying out any thinking of personal cost benefit analysis on whatever benefits I might think a replacement for my D800 may bring. Seems to me that Nikon`s rep like so many other main line manufacturers of all types is not quite as it once was and in general core values may have altered to some degree...? Even if  £3-4k was throw away money for me, I might queue up outside the camera shop to be first to have the honour to buy it.... NOT..(-:

If you read DPR, you know that if the DR on the 850 isn't at least a half stop better at base ISO than the D810, the camera will be branded an unmitigated failure.  I cite the 6DII.  Never mind (if the rumors hold true) that the thing will shoot 9 fps with grip in place and have a 42 mpx sensor and a 50 shot buffer.  If that holds, that's a great bit of read/write speed.  While a 50 shot buffer doesn't sound impressive, it is, after all, 50 mpx files compared to the D5's 18 mpx. 

 

I hope the new 850 is a big success and I hope that Nikon does enough beta testing to eliminate the recalls.  As it is, I would wait for the video reviews from Matt Granger and Jared Polin before lining up to pre-order.

That's one of the things I like about this shot.  Up and down the courts, you can see different phases of the game going on.  Those two young ladies are on the Quebec team.  From what I saw, the BC ladies were pretty much in command where as, the Quebec boys were dealing out the winning forehands.
