I own the 24-120 F4. I'd say it would only be possible to use that for indoor sports at really high ISO settings. Now, for an older versions of the lens I'd say don't waste your money.

Really high? As in one stop higher than an f/2.8 lens? Are we all forgetting how much better high ISO shots are these days compared to just 5 years ago?

Everyone seems to forget that AF performance is affected by the amount of light entering the camera.  Shoot at higher ISOs with a smaller aperture and you will end up with more out of focus shots.  But, hey, as long as they aren't too noisy . . .
