    I'm starting to do some research for my next lens and was hoping you could help.

    I currently have the Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5 on my Nikon D80. It's been a very good all purpose lens but I'm now ready to get a little more specialized.

    What I am looking for is a lens less than 100mm and the main emphasis for the new lens will be sports, general purpose and portraits. My budget is around $1,000 for the lens.

    Thanks for you help.

    Big Mike,

    Thank you for the welcome and lens suggestion. I read some online reviews and they all seem to concur that it's a great lens.

    What are your thoughts on having a prime?

    Thanks,
    Scott
