I photograph for a newspaper at prep school sports in the eastern part of Missouri. I will be purchasing a D4 soon. My question is whether to purchase a 300mm f2.8 or a 400mm f2.8 for night Football,Soccer, Baseball day/night in not well light fields. I am allowed on the sidelines at football and soccer and behind 1 & 3 bases in baseball. Inside sports include volleyball & basketball. I currently use a D3 with a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 and have never used a large prime lens. I would hate to spend the money and not be happy about the wrong purchase.
Budget is a concern. I will have to purchase used lens.
Would someone with experience with the D4 and these lens please advise me if the 300mm f2.8 would be ok for my needs or will I need the 400mm.
