Shootproof, Zenfolio, Pixiset . . . which is best?

This photographer will be photographing an event, and attendees can purchase the photos from her website afterwards.  She seeks recommendations on the best software to sell photos for this one-time event (without locking herself into a long-term commitment with the software).

Sports Photography

A sports photography newbie seeks recommendations on lenses for action shots. Got any tips?

Looking for lens advice

This photographer is ready to invest in an L zoom lens, but is torn between the 25-70 2.4 or the 70-200. She likes being closer to the client in order to interact with them, and she also does lifestyle newborn shoots frequently, so she's leaning towards the wider end. But the long lens portrait look of her 85 is one of her favorites. Can you help her decide?
