Currently have the gear in my sig, and I will be covering all of the usual HS sports this fall, and I am looking at a new lens. I would like something wider than my 28-105 as well as something longer than my 70-200... but can only purchase one lens for now and the other in the spring. I was thinking a 16-35 or 24-70 for group/team shots, jube and general PJ type stuff, and a 300 4 for extra reach for soccer, and football (before dark).
I can always crop images down, but can't go wider than 28mm right now, is that a concern for team shots etc? So my question is, would you go with the 300 or the 16-35/24-70 first, and why? Thanks, Zander
