These were in a dim arena and it was the first time I had ever used a camera to shoot any kind of action shots, sans airplanes. This was with the 18200 lens and the 5n. I think they came out ok since I was experimenting on the fly and trying to figure out what settings worked and what didn't.

The 55-210 would perform similarly. But shooting at f/8 and only an ISO of 1600 and a shutter speed of 1/500 means that this was a very well lit arena. I have shot the 55-210 at events like indoor tennis when my kids played and school plays and the speed of the lens is just not fast enough for indoor shooting unless the lighting is very, very good. I don't even consider the lens any more unless I am shooting outside.
