Re: Racing from the stands -- lens suggestions?

If you have the money, have fun.

But after having attended many races, I just grab a point and shoot to snap a few of the track and people to remember I was there. The harder you try for great race pics, the more $$ you spend, the more disappointed you will be. IMO Between getting the fencing in the shot constantly and basic capture issues, it's better to look at the photographers pics that were in the pits with the $3500 lens. I gave up trying and just enjoy the race without the hassle or carrying and worrying about expensive lens's. You are either close enough and looking through a fence, or so high you need a 6000mm lens for a good shot.
