    True. I once covered a soccer match for my school. Was standing around the corners of the pitch, using a 1.6x crop with the EF 100-400mm. Even at 400mm I can't get the tightest shot possible of the players on the other end of the field without doing a crop in PP.

    also, do spare a thought for the fans sitting in the row in front of you. if you happen to bring a superzoom, imagine what will happen to the poor fella's head should he suddenly stand up and cheer.

    I have my Oly 70-300mm which gives me up to 600mm for my 4/3 bodies. (Usually use up to 500mm equiv.)
    It's a good choice for such occasions (I think).

    Too bad, I don't think I'll going for the match.
    No $$$ for the tix..

    Anyway, I'm also not a Liverpool fan, that's why no motivation for this match..

    Also spare a thought for your lens... if the fellow stand up fast enough the whack on your lens will be as hard as your lens dropping onto the ground. Might do quite a bit of damage to those lens that extends significantly (e.g. Tamron 200-500)
