Hi all, I am looking for an 'upgrade' to my Nikon 55-300 VR lens. This is pretty much a kit style lens and whilst i have gotten some good results i could do with something a little quicker and perhaps a lower aperture figure. I predominately shoot Motorsport - Historic and GT's. I shoot at close up venues like Goodwood and Brands Hatch where length is not an issue, and also European circuits like Le Mans and Zandvoort where there are larger catch fences and gravel traps in places. I understand i might not be able to find a lens that can do everything, and all the focal lengths required but thats fine. Alot of my shots from Brands GP are no more than 100mm as its closer up, and most of the indy circuit can be shot at 200mm without too many issues. The european stuff often requires the full 300mm. Some of the races often go into the evenings, so having a slightly lower aperture figure might be of use. Think my current lens is f5.6-6.3 ? I have a 16-85 for closer up work which seems to work fine. I understand all of the 'whats wrong with your lens etc etc' - I am simply asking for lens suggestions that suit my needs. Dont worry about budget for the time being, (within reason) - i would just like to examine my options as the lens can be shared in the family. What do you use? what do you recommend? Thanks!
