I shot a high school hockey game yesterday and only used my 200f/2.0 VR with 1.4x and 1.7x. I have a lot to learn about shooting hockey for it is a fast moving sport and my timing is often off. Nonetheless the 200 f/2.0 VR is a great lens.
I typically use my 70-200 f/2.8 VR II but since I wasn't hired to shoot I wanted to play with the 200 mm.
I am amazed how sharp this lens is with both the 1.4 x and 1.7x.
