Hi Simon

Sorry I have just realised that I mislead you I have the the 70-200 lens (not the 80-200) which is good for when you are near the action, but I did crop some of my shots. I was thinking of a x2 tele converter but I only have the f4 version of the 70-200 Zoom which would not allow autofocus, but a faster zoom with tele converter would cover the range of situations pretty well. Or a decent telephoto lens?

Ah I see that explains the image sharpness, I'd recommend you getting the 1.4x series III extender from Canon as it allows for better communication between the lens and camera due to a chip in the extender. but as you have a 1D those have auto focus at f/8 while the lower line only work to f/5.6, so you will be able to use a 2x with your 70-200 f4.

I do have a few lenses right now that will do the job I was just interested in that 80-200 as I was happy with your photos with the crispness, but thats before you told me you made mistake.

Will catch up any way for next years racing

Some photographer I am, don't even know what equipment I have. Thanks for the tip on the 1.4 extender I will look out for one. I got a second hand 5D MKii for Christmas so will give that a try too, but can see what you mean regarding the build quality v the 1D. All the best.
