I have shot a lot of soccer,baseball,softball and football.high school grade.I found that the 70/300 was good only on sunny days.If it was cloudy with dark overcast the 70/300 just could not give me high enough shutter speeds.baseball and football games and some soccer games go into the evening and the 70/300 did not work for me then either.to much motion blur and noise from high ISO.I ended up with a Tamron 70/200.avordable,constant F2.8,somewhat big but not huge.excellant IQ.I would give up the extra 100mm of reach for the extra shutter speed any day.just my personnal experience.
