I have done some research on the internet, incoulding this forum; but most of the infornation relates to the faster 2.8 lenses. With my present budget I have obtained an Nikror AF 70-210mm 1:4-5.6D lens. From what I have found; the auto focus is fast on this lens and should work will when shooting sports. I this true? My concern is the lower than 2.8 lens speed. I an new to digital and sports shooting.
Through my research, I am getting alot of info framing shoots and how to fade out the background. What I hope to obtain from the forum members is information regarding the use of this lens and suggestions as to shutter speed and aperture settings. With this lens, I feel that I am going to stick to daylight shooting. I do have two other lens types: Nikkor AF 50mm 1.8D and Nikkor AF 28-80mm 3.3-5.6G. I will be using an Nikon D200 camera.

Thank you for your help, Bob
