I will have to try both lenses then given I ordered the 55-300 already I am surprised it is slower then the 80 - 200.
My last shot at the scrimmage last week was 1/80 s at f5.6 at ISO 800 with the lights on. About 7:18 PM. So things were turning dark fast but not completely black. I suppose I could squeeze out 1200 iso on the D300 maybe even 1600 ? The shots are destined to go to facebook.
The games start at 6:30 pm and so may need to switch lenses.
