    Last night at a soccer game I took some fantastic shots while I had good
    light. After the sun went down and the lights came on I put on my SB80DX
    and took some marginal shots.( I need more practice with the flash ) A
    professional photographer from the paper was there with his D1 and no
    flash. I asked him and since he was working he didn't elaborate but he
    said that all he does is adjust his ISO setting. The next game will be a
    football game in a couple of nights and I am going to do some
    experimenting. ( the beauty of digital ) Does anyone have any
    suggestions for shooting under lights at sporting events. with the 5700.

    Mark: Have owned the 5700 for several weeks have yet been a
    situation where shutter lag was a problem or even noticeable. Shots
    from 1" to infinity are superb. Location of Zoom button drives me
    crazy when viewing through the EVF: not an issue when using the LCD.

    yep - it may help a bit. when you are attempting to take pictures in the
    midst of a mini-stamped time moves very quickly as your life flashes before
    your eyes... I will have to be going to a dSLR (with the obvious
    dilemma...), more for the almost continuous view and the rapid manual zoom.
    It also makes a better weapon to beat the little rascals off when they are
    soliciting new herd members....

    the benefits of a vSLR like the 5700 is the size and cost. Generally both
    will at least double with a dSLR. I have a lot of full size 35mm - but they
    don't do much good sitting in the closet.

    Agreed, two main considerations which made me give the 5700 and converters
    a try when I upgraded from my 990 and converters.
