For those of you that use either D800 or D600 for sports...
I currently use D700 & Sigma 120-300 2.8 for soccer pics. Miss the reach of the D300 I had. Got D700 for night soccer & indoor b-ball pics. I take pictures of entire teams so I need to get pics of players across the field. With D700 there is nothing left after cropping. So, since I can't afford 200-400 lens or 400 2.8, I thought if I had camera with more mp that I could get a decent size pic after cropping. Currently only $800 dif between D800 & D600 (I can afford the dif)so, which would you recommend and why? I'd like best AF available (can't afford D4 either) Leaning toward 800 but will I regret larger files (take several hundred pics/game). Do any of you use crop mode to reduce file size? Any other advice? Appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
