It's outdoor high school soccer time for the girls again in Michigan. Although I can capture perfectly good soccer shots with my 70-200 f/2.8 lens, there's no substitute for the reach of big glass like the 300mm f/2.8 that captured this shot. My 300mm lens is a Nikon circa 2000. Yes, this lens is abourt 13 years old. I purchased it on eBay from a camera store several years ago. It's AF-S (meaning fast auto focus). And it works perfectly well with both my newer Nikon D700 and D800 camera bodies.
