another vote for DA 50-200

My wife uses this lens on our DS. The length should be good for little league. If you are fast enough with the kit lens, this lens should be fine. Something to remember is to anticipate your shot and be ready to catch the shot, especially if you go manual.

His comments lead me to believe he is not fast enough with the kit lens though.................

Browntown: Here in the Pacific NW, it's often overcast or grey during the sports seasons, and the boys are rarely closer than 40feet and move quickly. The 18-55 kit lens just isn't cutting it..................................I need a fast lens that can get some closeup shots of the boys on the run, even when the sun isn't shining.

Thanks all for the replies. I'm not fast enough, I can admit that, but for the prices involved you've sold me on both. I'll pick up an old manual focus and probably get the pentax zoom as well. Now to talk the mrs. into the extra cost for the 300mm over the 200mm

Excellent help, thanks again.
