Hi all, I posted a threat requesting advice on shooting indoor hockey. I shot the game but had a little bit of blur in some pictures. I don't like blur. The images also needed much brightening, given my Tamron 28-300 3.5-5.6. The pro I was with has a Nikon 70-200 2.8 constant. He used the lens on an indoor closeup and the hockey game. I would like a lens like his! I shoot with a Canon Digital Rebel XT. However, simply recommending lenses won't help much, as I have an outside influence. My dad is willing to let me sell the Tamron (his lens) in favor of a new lens, but I have to convince him that I actually need it first. He refuses to believe that the flash won't go quite that far or that it won't reflect off the glass and produce bad images. I will also generally be shooting inside. I live in Minnesota where no one WANTS to be outside unless they are playing sports. That said, if you could explain in just a little detail - what yoi think I need, WHY I need it, and where I can get it, I will be forever grateful!
