Visit Jim, It sounds like what I went through the first time I used my d600 to shoot my son's basketball game (of course it was the first time for me to shoot bb), yeah there's a lot of stuff to learn on the D600 specially if you came from a dino D70 like I did. Luckily the 85 1.8G had enough reach for me (used the 50 1.8 the 1st time but found it too short) so I highly reccommend that lens for low light action if its going to be long enough for your app. I have a 70-200 2.8 but in middle/high school gyms that are dimly lit, I had to shoot wide open at 1.8. I also had to tweak my settings for max. burst and AF tracking and speed so if you need those settings I'll be glad to share those with you. And perhaps you can give me feedback on how to improve them.
