    interesting, never shoot hockey before, might be interested hehe
    but my 80-200 push pull cant mount on tripod...argh
    anybody got advice? cant seem to buy the bracket, nobody selling out there as far as i've enquired from.

    if mount on camera and then on tripod with my hand partially supporting the lens, will it still spoil the camera thread?

    W/o a mount, you may not last long with your 80-200, and when you are tired, rejection rate goes up. Panning gets very tricky too.

    Why don't you just go and try. That lens not that heavy leh. From what I have done before, especially for outdoors sports, you should be able to easily get shutter speed of 1/500s, which is the right speed for this.

    I might wanna to drop by this afternoon to try shooting.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.
