Advise wanted on D800+fast tele+tc
I shoot sports indoors, outdoors, and at night under the lights.
Use a D800 as primary and D90 as backup.
I had bought the 80-200 2.8D as a stopgap measure till I can afford the 70-200 vr2, indoors I can get by with it, but for outdoors sports like soccer/lacrosse/baseball the tele end is limiting.
If you are shooting sports, I imagine the VR is not the greatest concern for you as you are stopping motion anyways. Maybe you can look at older pre-VR telephotos. The demand is much lower for these lenses - for example you could get an older 300mm f/2.8 lens for a steal.
