I feel fortunate to have amassed quite a few lenses in my short time with digital slr photography. One of them being the 70-200vr. It is "the" lens for me regarding image quality in its focal range. Being that it is quite large it really doesn't make it out too much. In the year that I've owned it, it is my least used lens. I like to be inconspicous and when I use it I feel very strongly that I am not. Anyway, I have in my kit now... 10-20 sigma 17-55 30 1.4 85 1.4 180 2.8 70-200vr I am thinking about selling it and getting an 18-200vr and the 70-300vr. My basic uses for the 70-200 are for my kids. Leisure time along with soccer and baseball. I am thinking the 18-200 would be very convenient for outings and the 70-300 would substitute for the soccer and baseball. My concern is mostly the focus speed on the 70-300. Also, it is nice to have something in between my 85mm and 180mm with a narrow dof. Do you think its a good idea? Or should I just get over my silly inhibitions?
