Fast zooms, longer primes/ budget? Suggestions? sub $1,000
May 19, 2012

I posted this in the sports action section but didn;t hear anything back yet. I'm wonder if I have any options for budget zooms or primes in the 100-225 range that are 2.8 or faster? I'm quickly finding the limitations of the f4. My goal being faster shutters in less than optimal lighting conditions. Night sports, indoor candid/ dancing, etc. In a perfect world I would rather not go into the 3200+ ISO territory. Again, about a thousand is all I can swing. My wife would say I'm dreaming even at that price point. Also wondering how big of a difference between a f2.8 and an f4 as far as gains in ISO and shutter speed? Big difference?

Thanks for any input.
