Alright so all of my camera gear has been sold, with the exception of my 50 1.8 AF-D (Still for sale btw, $110 shipped anywhere in the CONUS). Once it sells and I get my tax refunds, I'll have about $1400 to spend to get a camera and a lens. I could possibly save up a couple hundred more I guess, because the season doesn't technically start until 5-12. There are events before that I'd like to shoot, but not at the expense of having drastically worse camera gear for the whole season. So my current budget is $1400, expandable to *POSSIBLY* $1700 if it was really going to make that much of a difference. I'm a Nikon guy and would REALLY prefer to stick with Nikon equipment, but if I could get something that would perform alot better on Canon or Pentax, Id think about it for sure since I have pretty much no Nikon gear left other than a broken sb-600 and my nifty 50. That being said, $1400-1700 to spend to go shoot sports and do what I need to do: What's important to me: #1- Good high iso performance. #2- Frame rate - I'd like at least 5 fps if possible #3 2.8 or faster lens for shooting sports in low light. Likely going to be a 70/80-200 of some sort I'm sure. So with that being said, I know whats on the market in my price range, and I know what I'm thinking of, but I want to see if you guys suggest anything different than I'm thinking before I give you ideas as to what I have in mind. Shoot.
