    AF-S 70-200 VR2 + TC = recommendation for soccer

    I use my 70-200 for my daughter's Varsity soccer on my D300. On a sunny day I'll use my 1.4 tele also. I have a 300mm f2.8 & yes I do use it but its useless when the play get close. I've found generally, 6 years now, if the soccer play, is in my "quadrant" of the field this side of the field...

    FAIL! I ordered it. Was: Talk me out of the 300/2.8 PLEASE!

    Got mine about 6 months ago. Incredible. I was on a "Wait List" @ B&H to be emailed when their shipment arrived. It took about 4 months! Really tough holding onto that much $$$$ with her asking EVERY day if I reeeeealy needed that lense. Leaving Kitchen remodelling magazines lying around...

    Buyer Beware, devious online seller....

    I know better. I really do. All is well but nearly bad. This just reaffirms to me that I will only do business with BHphoto. The absolute best in the business. No, I do not work there. ! I've been on a wait list for several months now for a Nikon 300mm f2.8 AF VR. Nearly $6K which I scraped...

    Can a seller be scammed on Paypal?

    DO NOT do it. I could type for hours here about too many stories. Listen to others who have learned the hard way. Postal money Order. Bank Draft Money order. Deposited into your account. Cleared... etc etc... Shipped & insured. signed delivery.... CYA !!
