So, which Canon cameras are best for sports photography? And what lenses do professional sports photographers recommend?
"For me, shooting with a Canon DSLR, the essential lenses for sports are the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM and a short zoom," says Canon Ambassador Jorge Ferrari. But, as the in-demand sports, action and commercial photographer also reveals, the best lens ultimately depends on what the objective is for a particular event. "Let's say I'm covering a rugby match, for example," Jorge continues. "I would put a 400mm or 600mm lens on my Canon EOS-1D X Mark III because the tight action shots would be my main focus. But I'd switch to a 70-200mm or 24-70mm lens for the prize presentations, because my priority has changed."
