Hello:

I generally do portraits. However, my daughters are competing in gymnastics and I am trying to capture good images of their efforts. I have used my D90 with the recent 85 1.8G, and when they are in range, the results are very nice. I get some subject isolation and pleasant colors.

However, gymnastics is not often a convenient sport for spectators. It is spread out all over the place. I want to reach out a bit.

Two approaches occur to me. A longer lens would certainly do the trick, though speed is at a premium because the lighting is universally poor in these gyms. That makes the longer lens costly.

Or, I could get a used V1 with adaptor, and slap my 85mm lens on that. I end up with the much discussed smaller sensor and the huge crop factor.

I wonder which approach you would recommend. Thank you in advance for your response.

Best wishes to all Nikonians
