"RE: It may be what I need ? Your thoughts ? "
>I have a 80 - 200 2.8 D lens...>It must be an improvement over the 80 to 200 D lens in terms>of focus speed in addition to VRII...I have both lenses, and the 80-200 focuses faster. I don't think you will miss shots because of lack of focus on the 55-300, but still, the 80-200 focuses faster.>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...Shooting in daylight, you should have plenty of light at ISO 200. But if you're shooting a night game, you will probably want to use your 80-200 at f2.8.>Any thoughts .. I need to order it soon to be ready for next>weeks game !!If it is a day game, you will like the 55-300. If it is a night game, anything short of a college stadium probably requires f2.8. That's been my experience.Randy
