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!


The world's best Vulcan, XH558, after 14 years on the ground, lives again.
