Sony a7R Field Report #2: Sports Action

This is an ongoing report that I started on February 15, 2014 following my purchase of the new full-frame mirrorless 36.4MP Sony Alpha a7R digital camera.
You can view the entire report here.

The other evening I brought my Sony a7R camera to a youth soccer game to see how the camera responds to sports action photography.

It has been a number of years since I photographed any sports action. Being a former photojournalist for 17 years I had the opportunity to photograph countless sporting events from youth to professional sports and everything in between. Being a number of years removed from those days, the rust was evident the other night while shooting as my timing was terrible.
