Re: Help... Nikon DX and lens for indoor and outdoor sports and more

I mainly take pictures of my daughter at horse shows and just upgraded to d D7500 from a D5000. I found that the D5000 does wonderful in daytime and is ok indoors with good lighting, but did not do well with the night classes (under flourescent lighting) when I had to bump up the ISO to maintain shutter speed, even with a 2.8 lens. Maybe the later D5x models do a better job.

So far I am impressed with the image quality from the D7500 at higher ISO just from shots I've taken indoors. We don't have any horse shows until May and I haven't had the opportunity to shoot any action at night yet, but I'm optimistic based on the samples I've seen. I have rented a Nikon 70-200 f2.8 in the past and have had the best luck with that. I'm going to try the 18-140mm that came with the D7500 but I fully expect I'll be purchasing a 2.8 in the near future.
