Air shows = zoom! When they fly real close, you will be glad you have that 200mm end! (Cutting off wings looks funny sometimes!) Then with a quick twist you are at 400mm and doing a cockpit shot!

Plus I am not sure how close a subject can be with the 300 f2.8 but I can get like 5 or 6 feet away from a cool part of a plane like landing gear and still focus.

Nikon D200, 200-400 f4 VR, 70-200 2.8 VR, 105 VR macro, SB800, Tamron 17-50 2.8 Sigma 10-20. Panasonic DMC-fx01
