Hi All,
I have a D300S and love it. I use a 70-200VRII and 80-400mm lens for shooting sports. FPS is not so important to me for football.

When using my D300S, I found myself going up to H3 to try and get the shutter speed up with my 70-200 lens. A lot of the pictures did not turn out so well.

I have heard the D600-800 have much better low light capability. Will I notice a difference? I understand the crop factor of the DX vs. FX.

I am going to purchase a D800 and wondered what the best settings are to shoot HS Football games at night on the field under lights.

Can someone who has the experience and knowledge out there give me some advice? Would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Randy
