    Can others edit my Photos:

    Sigma does make a nice 70-200 F2.8 and it's probably less expensive than a similar Nikon or Canon lens.

    Lenses for shooting sports, especially in poor lighting...can get very expensive because they have to be long and fast.

    I don't know much about Nikon (I'm a Canon guy) but Canon has a 70-200 F4....which is smaller and cheaper than the F2.8. Of course, if you need that extra speed...you have to shell out the big bucks.
