D700 Telephoto for Motorsport?
Jul 5, 2012

I've recently moved over to Nikon, having run Olympus E system for about 8 years...

So, one D700 later, I'm wondering what tele zoom will match my 50-200 Zuiko? I bought a 75-300 ED just as a stopgap till I sort something permanent.

My son runs an 80-200 2 touch (Which I THINK is an AF-D...) with his D200/D300. I can get one locally for a good price.
Do I go hunting for the AF-S, which I'm told is a SO much better???

I do know I don't really have much use for VR. Hand held panning is the game, and VR really couldn't help with that.

Would you reccomend I get the MB-D10, for all that glass getting moved around has to EAT battery power, yes?

So, I'm new to Nikkors, and trying to feel my way through the maze!

HELP!
