I need some faster glass. Basically, my aperture isn’t wide enough for the high shutter speed you need to capture fencing without blur. I had to compensate with ISO 800 and that gives me some nice grainy photos–but without blur. When I get my hands on some faster glass (this means a lens with a bigger aperture, at least f 2.8) the action will be frozen but it’ll be nice and grain-free.

Here’s some cool shots:
