I hate to open this thread here, but because my primary interest is sports photog I would like to get some feedback from the members. In about a month I am planning on upgrading my glass, and here are some of the options that I have been contemplating: Keep in mind that I will probably spend around $2000.00 - $2200.00. I like my D50, and I have only been shooting for about 7 months. Keeping my D50: 1). Purchase the 70-200 Vr 2.8 and a prime like 180 2.8 2). Purchase the 70-200 Vr 2.8 and TC. 3). Possibly finding a used 300 mm f/4 4). Open to other suggestions. Also, these options I will throw in the ring. A). Keep the D50 and try to find a used D2H with low miles, and a used 2.8 lens. B). Keep the D50 and try to find a used D200 with low miles, and a used 2.8 lens. I also have these thoughts in my head. Because we assume in the next 6 months to a year or two Nikon might release a new body so do I get to know my D50 even more and take options A & B out of the equation and just go with the glass and look for a new body in 2 years or so. Also just as a FYI I plan buying a new mono soon so I will have that, and just because I am newbie I would prefer to buy new unless buying used from NC. My other interest include portraits and wildlife, but I will shoot anything.:biggrin: and plan on keeping my current glass. And some more info, for my little league shooting I have access to go on the field, HS sports (been in contact with AD to get credentials to go on field for baseball and football). HS Basketball is a not a problem. Feedback, Ideas, and thoughts welcome. (this gives me about a month to look at my options). You can even tell me Im crazy but I got NAS.
