There were quite a few press photogs using the 200mm F2.0, with some 300 and 400mm lenses. If you are mid-court only a couple of metres from the net, you don't really need more than 200mm for full frame. If you want to focus just on a facial expression, then the longer reach is handy.
I think the max length they'll let you take into a professional event is likely to vary depending upon the type of sport and how closely packed the spectators are.

I don't understand this. I had the exact same problem with a local venue when I wanted to shoot some preseason hockey. They said nothing over 200mm. I thought to myself the 200 2.8 cost twice as much as the lens I'm showing you AND I could just add a 2x to the 200mm and get great shots....Show more →
