after shooting a soccer match in the weekend and seeing a pro with two bodies and a 400 or 500 lens on a monopod, i have decided i really need a super tele when i start pro. for sports.
I am looking at either the 500 4 or the 300 2.8.
The 300 2.8 looks like a better option as I have a tc-20eiii already, but what will the IQ be like?
the 300 will also be handy indoors where the 500 wont, the 300 is 2.8 and hand holdable, even with the tele on.
is there a noticeable difference between the D, DII, VR and VRII in terms of IQ. there is a big difference in price as i can get the first 3 used.
comments and pics appreciated.
