would it be worth buying if i can get a good deal on it?
i have a 55-200 now, but that seems like it would focus faster and probably has vr, making it better for sports shots. how would it shoot in low light areas? i have a d70s. i would use it to shoot hockey and probably use a teleconverter at some point.
I have that lens. Deppending on the Nikon body you have, the better it is focusing. Will have no problems at all shooting sports with this lens. I noticed a difference on the D300 over the D50 in focusing speed. It could be just me but seems a bit better. It's the screwdriver drive for focusing. Had it for 8 years now. Not a single problem with it. It's heavy, built like a tank.
