About 2 weeks ago, I ordered a 200 - 400 Nikkor VR from a local shop that I thought reputable. Well it turns out they weren't and have since gone under, I paid by cheque which I have since canceled. So this may seem like a complete basket case. But I'm wondering is it? Maybe I made a mistake? Is that what I really want? I already have a 70-300 lens I shouldn't recover the same ground. I therefore suggest we look at finding something else. What I'm looking for? My budget is £4,000 ($5,800), I'm only looking for new or mint condition lens. I'm looking for my equipment to last a long time, something that will last a lifetime. I love to shoot sports, I generally don't do this indoors or with low light, but sometimes I do something that has versatility. Rowing, Cricket, Hockey, Rugby and Sailing are my favorite subjects. But my true passion lies with, Wildlife photography, next year I am working in Kenya from September for 3 months in a Dutch Eco-lodge, I will also be spending 3 weeks in April following the migration and possibly be heading to India. I want something that will cover the distance, a tele-converter is also what I'm looking at. To Conclude? Quality is a must! Speed is a must! Length is a Must! I've created this thread to make sure I make the right decision, some of the people on this forum have a insane amount of knowledge and so I know that with your help I can make the right decision.
