For $1000 I'd buy:

Nikon 180 2.8D (used) $400
Nikon 85 1.8D $500

<edit> looks like you already purchased the 70-200. I had thought this one was well over $1000 but maybe not.

You know by the time you add up the new lens, a new body, a flash ... it might be the cheapest option.

Of course, then you will get the naysayers of "Never shoot at noon in the sun!" There's no "perfect" answer.

The lens you bought sounds like the best compromise of the various issues you are balancing.

Good luck with your lens and shooting.

At this point, since I ordered the 70-200mm VR, I'll be shooting f/2.8 with whatever light is available so if I'm still getting motion blur it sounds like I'll have to choose:

- Accept a little motion blur
- Bump the ISO to 6400 and accept the noise
- Choose shots at the hight of a jump or a slight pause in the action
- Build an outdoor gymastics gym and host the events there midday


hmm it's starting to sound like what you really need is a fast prime.. something like an 85 1.4 or the 1.8G. Sometimes even 2.8 is just not fast enough.

Unfortunately I went over budget. I was able to find one for $1300. It should be here on the 12th.

Here's where I got it:
