Hello, I have worked my way up over the years to a D600 and will be shooting an indoor track and field event so I can assume low light. Probably the best lens in my arsenal that has any distance at all is a 70-300 F4-5.6 non-VR. I know it isn't a fast lens, but my faster lenses might not give me the reach I need. I am hoping the ISO range of the camera will compensate for the lack of a faster lens.

My assumption would be to set the camera in shutter priority, possibly 1/500 and put the camera in auto-ISO mode.

Are there other camera settings I should set, and are the settings above where you would start?

Have shot many pictures of the years but mainly studio and non-action shots so this is a new genre to me as well as being new to this body and it's capabilities.

I do have a 24-120 as well, but it only gives me a .5 stop more but a lot less reach. I also have a TC-16a, but it isn't compatible. I also have the 24-85 kit lens which does have VR, but here again, I just don't think that it will have enough reach and I don't want to have to crop hundreds of pictures.

Suggestions please!
