Advice for set for sports photography


I'm looking around for a decent cam with a good lens for sportsphotography. I will mainly shoot road race cyclists and cyclocross.

I've done some research and came up with these three sets

  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II + Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM II (€ 3738,-)
  • Nikon D7100 + Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm F2.8 G IF-ED VR II Nano (€ 2848,-)
  • Sony SLT-A77 II+ Sony 70-200mm F2.8 G SSM II (€ 3998,-)

Maybe there are other alternatives?

I also have some lenses from an old Sony cam but don't know whether they are suitable for the Sony A77:

  • Konica Minolta AF DT Zoom 18-70 5.6 D
  • Minolta Zoom xi AF 80-200 5.6
  • Minolta Zoom xi AF 100-300 5.6

The normal 18-55 photo's i will make with my sony Nex 5.

I need to be able to shoot with low light (dark weather), a fast autofocus and as much as frames per second as possible to capture the action.

I've no intention to use the camera for video.

Any advise or critics are welcome.
