    Anyone using this indoors or outside at night in bad light and have sports pics to show?

    Thanks. I don;t like my ISO 1600 shots, but I can live with ISO 800 on my d2h and am considering this lens for that purpose.

    I need to figure out how to post photos on this site. I will link you to a site where I have a couple of shots with a nikon 200 F2 VR lens. Here is the link;

    Sorry about the "mickey mouse" site, I can send you to another site to see other 200 VR 2 photos if you want to see them.

    The first three football photos where shot @ 9:15pm at night, poor lighting like any other high school football game. ISO was set @ 1400, 500 shutter if I remember correctly. All three of these shots were hand held. If I mono'd the "coffee can" and camera, the shots would of been razor sharp even after running them thru Neat Image. The other football photos where shoot with a Sigma 120-300 F2.8

    This lens is outstanding and worth the money if you shoot any low light action photographs.

    :arrow: I REALLY want to see this lens used with a D2X under the same conditions.

    I hope I helped.
