Recommended lenses for sports in bright sunlight:
Recommended lenses for sports in low light:
The Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 can be adapted to the Sony a6000 with the help of a Sigma MC-11 adapter. This is the most “affordable” setup for low light sports/action and is best used for close range sports like basketball and volleyball. For low light sports at a distance, the Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 would be the best choice.
