Bill Would you please enlighten me, HOW do you use a 70-200 in a gym? Are you shooting tight shots of individual players? Unless I am shooting the far court or the other side of the court, I can't figure using a 70-200 in the gym. A 16-80 or 24-70 on a DX body seems about right for how I shoot. I currently shoot with a 35/1.8 and 50/1.8 (to deal with the low light in the gym), but I might get a Tamron 17-50/2.8 or one of the 24-70/2.8.
