OK, my brain is running out of soccer picture captions for today. :)
An f/5.6 maximum aperture lens such as this one requires a reasonable amount of light to deliver shutter speeds high enough for stopping sports action. If the light is there, this lens performs very well. This overcast mid-morning game required ISO 640 for a barely-adequate 1/800 sec shutter speed.
