Re: NikonD7000 or Pentax K30

That's the problem with forums - you'll get a range of opinions and approaches, so it rarely clarifies decision making, it often just gives you more options and approaches to sift through (which is also a good thing).

The D90 option plus 55-300 would be fine for outdoors with plenty of light. 70-300vr is more highly regarded (with faster AF) and the extra spend reflects that. The 85 f1.8 is a good indoors option, presuming you aren't too far from the action.

The 70-200 f2.8 options should provide faster AF and better subject isolation at the expense of range for outside shots and won't let quite as much light in for indoors.

So between the options above there are pros and cons to both - you need to decide which compromise better suits you and your budget.
