So this will be my first attempt at shooting of of these. The lighting in the ring is really nice and I'm now down to one body, So I was thinking about using the 18-200 Vr on my D300. http://johnjphotography.smugmug.com/gallery/4650678_zZi4a#275495911_uUTdF Thats the link to the guy who is shooting them now, I was there working that event on the ambulance. So do you feel the 18-200vr will do or shout I use my tamron17-50 2.8 I wont have the reach across the ring but Ill have a faster glass. the cage is a 24' circle figured that could help give you and idea and maybe someone can lead me in the right direction. Of course this isn't a pay gig I get free access backstage and all the goodies and they will post a link were people can by the pictures on there site. Which I figure isn't to bad considering im just getting started in thins.
