Need recommendations for sports lens for D700
May 13, 2012

Since getting a D700, I see the need to upgrade a lens or two. I do a lot of sports shooting at night, particularly motorsports. So I need a fast lens without spending several thousand dollars. On my D200, my 24-85 lens was a good length for a DX camera. It's not quite long enough on a FX camera. I've looked at the Nikon 24-120 f/4 and the Nikon 28-300 lens. But my concerns with these lenses is whether my shots would be too dark since neither has a max aperture of 2.8. Im afraid bumping up the ISO to compensate would degrade the shots a bit with noise. I would go with the 70-200 f/2.8 lens, but I don't think 70mm is wide enough. Any recommendations would be helpful.
