I currently shoot with a 75-300 and have recently started shooting some football/soccer games and looking to move to the next level 70-200 F2.8 type lens to blur backgrounds more and shoot more in lower light situations. My question to those of you who shot with a 70-200 is, do you miss shooting in that 200-300 range?
I am on a budget and this is only something I do on the side. The few games I have shot recently, I have needed every bit of that 300 when they are on the other side of the field, but when the action is close, with this entry level lens, everything is in focus. I know I could invest in a 300 or 400 lens, but its just not in the budget. Am I over thinking this length issue if I make the switch?
