comment What lens do I need to take a decent picture of a graduation ceremony from football-field seating?
@MichaelClark, I think we're focused on different words. :) You italicized decent, while I should have written "...decent picture of a graduate."

comment What lens do I need to take a decent picture of a graduation ceremony from football-field seating?
I kind of thought that's how it'd work, too, but since the OP said they could end up at the other end of the field I figured they must do it some other way.

comment How can I find my own style?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is more of a discussion than a question that fits the Q&A format.

comment How can I get tack-sharp portraits with the focus perfectly on my subject's eye?
Note that by recomposing you are likely adjusting the focal plane, so it's no longer on the eye.

From across the field, 300mm will not capture a decent picture of a graduate. 300mm on a crop-sensor camera at an optimistic 160 feet away is likely to contain the heads of perhaps a few dozen seated graduates.

comment How can I get a 12ft wide field of view at 3ft distance?
Yes, going for a full frame camera and Canon's 8-15mm lens is the only reasonably-priced option -- assuming you can't increase distance. Back up far enough and any camera/lens will do the job.

comment Is it worth getting a zoom lens which overlaps with lenses I already have?
35mm is not "fairly wide" on the OP's crop-sensor camera; it's "normal," roughly 50 mm-equivalent, and not wide.

comment Nikon 50mm f1.8D will autofocus, but not take photo with Nikon Df body
Do you still have the D3s to test the lens on, side-by-side? I'm guessing not.
