I do mostly portraits and dance in auditoriums where flash is not allowed.

I am selling my D7000 and I have my order in for a Nikon D7100 with B&H.
I especially like the advantage the 7100 will give me in autofocus when shooting the stage.

The lens I have mostly used for dance is my Nikkor 16-85mm f3.5-5.6. This works on many occasions but I would like a faster lens with more reach at times. I also had a Nikkor 70-300mm zoom which give me the reach but not the speed so I sold it.

I am presently fixated on the Nikkor Prime 180mm f2.8. The price is right for me around $400 - $500 used, and it has great glass. I could also use it for some portraits.

Do you think this will work well with my new D7100?

Any comments would be appreciated.
