I came into a little bit of money and I have been lusting for a couple of lenses for awhile, I mostly shoot sports, Snowmobiling, Rodeo, my kids school sports, etc...

I have been wanting the 70-200 2.8 VR, 85 1.4, 17-55 2.8, and I have been looking at the Sigma 50-150 2.8 wich seems like a decent lens for the money.

I really don't know why I am even posting, I think I am going to get the big daddy (70-200 2.8) and a 1.7 tele....

sound good? thanks ;)

I already have the 18-200 (nice small travel lens) 50 1.8 and the (I'll probably sell it) 70-300 VR

I have the 3 Nikkors you are considering and I am simply in heaven. There is really nothing more to say than that. Useless repetitions of adjectives just wont do these three justice. Buy those three and sell the rest.

All three of the lenses that you are considering are wonderful, but if the 70-200mm VR is most useful for your photography, I concur that you will be more than pleased. Not sure about the 1.7x TC performance though....you'll need to ask around.

maybe an 80-200 2.8 AFS and a 85 1.4 I could probably get both of those for pretty close to the cost of a 70-200 2.8

hmmmm.....

The 80-200mm is a fine lens from what I have heard, but no personal experience on my part. The 85mm is another great acquisition.

Well, I'll highly recommend the 70-200VR lens as totally superb, and marries well with the 1.4 TC. With what you shoot, handheld is better so the VR assists. I've never regretted the 70-200VR or the 17-55 - both outstanding lenses.

As stated by Frank and others, the 70-200 VR is one of the most versatile pieces of glass made. You will not be dissappointed. It works extremely well with the 1.4 T/C.
