Hi guys,

Need a bit of help choosing a zoom lens. At the moment i'm using a D50 body, however i'm looking to move to a d300, so i want a lens that won't be a let down on a d300.

Its use will be mainly for car shows, with action on the track, so some reach is required (200 minimum!) And budget wise, say £350 (2nd hand would be better as 350 would go a long way!)

I got one of these -

As a stop gap for a car show this weekend, however i'm not sure we are going to get along (slow focus, not very sharp!) I think VR would help as although i am shooting outside -

A) British weather means overcast days
B) Action is fast paced.

I look forward to your recommendations!
