    Remember that the crop factor does not actually increase your focal length, it only reduces your field of view to be narrower.

    It sounds like you want a 70(or 80) to 200 f2.8 constant to me. They're very versatile for the money and work well for sporty type stuff where you aren't too far away.

    And who let you loose with $1,000??? [​IMG]
