I have a 80 - 200 2.8 D lens and it's a classic lens. I have no intention of giving it up but I would like something a bit longer to cover my sons football for the next eight games and his remaining two years in high school.

I don't want to spend a gradd or more which is what I usually end up spending when I aquire a new lens. The price on this lens makes it very tempting.

It must be an improvement over the 80 to 200 D lens in terms of focus speed in addition to VRII ? So I can't see going wrong with this purchase.

It is slower then the 2.8 D lens but at ISO 800 on the D300 there seemed to be plenty of light even at 5.6.

Any thoughts .. I need to order it soon to be ready for next weeks game !!

Cheers ..
