I have a kid entering his junior year in HS and is now playing on the varsity football team where most of the games are at night. I have also somehow become the team photographer and am trying to figure out night photography. I have a Nikon D4 and just picked up a refurbished Nikon 300mm f2.8 VR which is a great combo for the action on the field. However, I keep on missing sideline shots and action shots coming near me due to the reach of the lens.
I tried a D300 with a 70-200 F2.8 VR during their first night game, but the IQ and color were so different from the D4 that I could not find many keepers. Ideally, I would have another D4/D4s to pair with the 70-200 2.8, but I cannot justify the cost. I am thinking about picking up an used D700, D610, or perhaps D800 which can also serve for landscape use, but I keep reading different things about each camera for night football which will be the main use of this camera.
Any help on which second camera body would be best for night football for closer action/sideline shots would be greatly appreciated.
PS. Here is a photo of my kid enjoying a 315 lbs pancake
