Thanks to everyone for the speedy replies - never knew people were so helpful on this forums.
To Kick things off:
You've mentioned a major range of focal lengths, from 50mm to 400mm, and the message hints you have minimum experience.
Very True, lol, More like almost no experience.
I am planning to hold onto what I've got for a while longer, but just starting to think about upgrading now, so when the time is right, I can do it straight away.
I am never going to the street circuit at Valencia again, talk about officious!
I know exactly what you mean! Whenever I do a bit of racing myself, they always annoy the hell outta me!
But seriously, back to the point of this thread...
What's your budget? if you have $2000-2500 I would go for the 100-400L, if you have $3000-3500 id go for a 70-200 f2.8 personally I thing 200mm would be a bit short for most motorsport but I would love a 70-200 for other reasons
in the pits just use your 18-55.
I am more in the $2000-$2500 range, probably try to get one for under $2k if possible. The 18-55 is the kit lens, so image quality and usability are pretty average to say the least, would there be any cheapish lens tat would do the trick, maybe with a little more range? BTW that website was awesome, nice and cheap too
This is coming from my novice self, but I just don't like the idea of prime lenses as much, doesn't seem to give flexability. Just been looking through some recent shots, and they range anywhere from 130 up to 300, quite a few in either the 180-200 and 280-300 bracket. This is probably just pointless info though...
Anyway, thats all for now
