I would like some advice on my next lens purchase. I need a telephoto...the popular 70 to 200/300 range. I do a fair amount of indoor sport shooting which I usually use a 85 1.8. I have come up with a few options: 1. 80-200 AF-D - I rented it for a couple of weeks and really liked the IQ. Most posts I have read say it is a great lens. Drawbacks no VR or AF-S, it's also heavy but that doesn't bother me much. 2. 70-300 AF-S Vr - I have just rented this one for a week. The AF-S and VR are great and it is light enough to carry around for extended periods. The longer reach is nice, but I am really concerned about the 4.5-5.6 aperture. I would continue to use the 85 1.8 for indoor shooting, possibly picking up a used 180 2.8 (not sure about the focus speed). 3. Unlikely scenario...wait and save up for a 70-200 AF-S VR. Sorry for the long post.
