I was literally running with my DA 50-200 while hiking with my older boy aged at 5 with fast moving legs and great fondness in playing hike and seek with his slow moving Dad. I could not have made the shots had I not carried my DA 50-200. The lens is an absolute joy in taking pictures outdoor.

And consider that I was actually running, paused and took the shots, the lens does pretty good in capturing the motion in the running. I was a bit off in not getting the full body in many of the shots. And that was likely because of the fact that I was running with him and have little time to frame the shot properly.

I shot the series before I get my FA 50 f/1.4. And I think many of the shots are at a very far distance and I actually used 200mm. I think the FA 50 would be a bit faster in the AF but it can't reach my boy's outrunning me in front.

It is a pure joy in taking this series. I feel like doing paint-ball with my DA 50-200. It is how I feel on that day! I ran after my boy, heart pounding with both hands securing my DA for protection, heavy backpack on my back with ammunition for more power -- battery, kit's len and water. I set zoom at range closer to 200 mm, paused behind my running boy, aim and shoot, and ran again. And in some of the shots in the series, I managed to knell down to get extra stability.
