What lens(es) for indoor sports with k10D?
Oct 31, 2007

All - with the recent price drops on the k10D, it looks like an incredible value, especially for someone who doesn't make their living at photography and doesn't want to spend a fortune on a hobby.

I'm curious what lenses you'd all recommend for shooting indoor sports? Is there something along the lines of an 85 1.8 or 100mm f2 for a reasonable price? I've done a few preliminary searches and couldn't find anything other than the 77mm, which looked relatively expensive compared to the above mentioned lenses in the Canon mount (both around $325 or so).

Also, how's the continuous AF speed?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
