If I want a good lens (not too expensive) to shoot during sports events, which one would you suggest me?
A Tamron 28-75 f2.8 goes for about $325 or so used in the Marketplace from time to time. For near the sidelines it should be a good length. Up in the bleachers, probably not long enough.

If you're on the sidelines, it's an excellent half-court lens! If you can, sit on the floor near one of the corners at your team's offensive end of the court: that's how I got the first one I posted (using that very lens.)
