  1. Nikkor 80-700mm f/2.8 vs Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 - any input?

    I'm looking to buy a new lens for my D80 that will give me better results for dusk/indoor sports shots.

    I thought about the Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VR but I have been told I need an f/2.8 or...

    Thanks so much for your reply. I ended up getting a great deal on a used Sigma 170-500mm lens so I'm going to give that a try. Again, I realize that to the more serious photographers, this will not...

    Thank you -- I'm downloading the trial right now. I never came across this one when i purchased my last slideshow software (ProShow Gold)...I'm going to load the same photos to see how it turns out....

    I used Microsoft for cropping only. Slideshows are created with either ProShow Gold or Ulead DVD Picture & Slideshow (the last I checked though - this was not compatible with Vista). An important...

    Thanks for all of the replies!! I did try cropping my photos and while I appreciated eliminating non-essential parts of the photo -- I didn't like how the cropped photos work with my DVD slideshow...
  6. Can I get some input on some super zoom lenses? Sigma & Tamron?

    I posted a few months ago --

    I primarily use my D80 to take outdoor photos of my children playing soccer. I use sports mode and have been really happy with the results (Tamron 75-300mm lens). ...

    Thank you for your replies. I'm going to play around a bit with my camera & try cropping the photos to see if I get the desired results.

    I've read some articles, yet I can't just seem to *get*...

    So you're saying I should buy a better 200mm lens and in the end will produce better photos than my 70-300mm Tamron lens if I crop? (again - remember I'm real a point & shoot, novice of a...

    Thank you for your reply.

    My kids both play soccer. My youngest is on a small enough field (50 x 35 yards) that I am still getting great shots with my 70-300mm lens. My daughter, however, is on...
  10. What are my lens options on my D80 to get good sports close up shots?

    I'm very much an amateur, point and shoot gal. I only use auto/program modes. I have a Tamron 70-300mm lens, but I'm finding that is not doing a good enough job of getting the shots I'm striving...

    I did -- aren't they amazing photos!! That thread is the reason I now want to add the 1.7 tele-converter :) Thanks for pointing it out to me!

    THANKS so much! I don't think you're being negative regarding the FZ18 -- I appreciate your comparing it to the cameras that I own.

    I'm trying to find a way to take as close up as possible,...

    [QUOTE=genece;260810]
    And a D80 with a 300mm lens is 450mm which is very close to what the FZ20 has and not far from the FZ18........and I would say the amount of crop posssible with the D80 photos...
  14. Question about the Lumix DMC-FZ18 -- does it take quick shots at full zoom?

    I had a Lumix FZ20 (loved it - but then we dropped it - may it rest in peace). I primarily take photos at my children's soccer games. My favorite shots are the ones with the ball in action and as...
