I have an opportunity to begin doing some freelance sports shooting on the side. My only camera body is the original digital rebel (aka 300D). My fastest lens is a 60mm 2.8, so I'm figuring on buying the 85 1.8. I'm approaching the winter sports season and I'll mostly have the chance to photograph wrestling and basketball. Is the 85 1.8 a good lens for bball and wrestling? Could I get away with a 2.8 aperture indoors or will I benefit greatly from the 1.8 or faster? Lastly, will the 300 D suffice or is a 30 D in my near future? As the spring roles around I would then be looking to pick up a 70-200 2.8
Any input from sports shooters would be great. Thank you.
