f/4.0 is going to be pretty slow as well, you will be able to get twice the shutter speed (or be able to use half the ISO) to get the same result with a f/2.8 versus a f/4.0. If you can swing the f/2.8, I would highly recommend it. The f/2.8 will also have a better chance of focusing as it is giving the AF sensors twice the amount of light to work with.

You might also want to check out the 200mm f/2.8 prime if cost is an issue with the 70-200 f/2.8. Not great that it is a prime, but having the f/2.8 is fantastic.

Yeah, I saw that there was a 200mm prime. I'll bet the crispness on it has got to be pretty great!

Hey RinkRat, what's the ruling on cameras at the Derby Dolls? I hear there's another meet this weekend.

I'd have to disagree with that. There's no such thing as too much reach IMHO.
