What sports might you shoot?

Some have tried the DA*60-250 for sports, but it's really not that well suited. Works OK for some people, though (don't y'all get mad at me!). But then the DA*50-135 works for some people too - even for me at times. Other times it makes me want to pull my hair out. But only for action shots - it's fantastic if people are merely walking. DA*300 is better. So is the F or FA135.

The upcoming *70-200/2.8 will probably be great in every way and cost nearly $3000. You can get a Tamron 70-200/2.8 now for around $700, and it focuses quickly. I don't think there's any specific lens worth waiting for unless $2K-3K is in your price range.

Again, what kinds of sports shooting are you considering?
I don't mind spending money on quality items.. If the new lens is sharp and well built I have no problems with $2k+...

What sports do i shoot? - anything really, Australian rules football, soccer, tennis, cricket and of course motorsport (MotoGP and WSBK).
