Pros: http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,2845,2335281,00.asp
Cons:
None

Shooting indoor sports and outdoor band contests at night have two things in common: There's not a lot light. Sure, a brightly lit football field or well-lit gym looks bright, but if you're trying to shoot action shots at 1/400th of a second or better, you quickly discover that you need fast lenses. So my D300 is paired with a Nikon 24-70mm f2.8G ED AF-S and a Nikon 70-200 f2.8 ED-IF AF-S VR. Both are zoom lenses that can be set at f2.8 through all zoom settings.

The combination of the D300 and 70-200VR weighs almost five pounds. Shooting with that combination gives my hands, arms and shoulders quite a workout. So I often use a monopod with a Really Right Stuff monopod head. The 70-200VR ships with its own tripod mounting bracket, which locks onto the lens via a latch-and-screw assembly.
