I've been approached about doing some gymnastics photos at a local place. The lighting is terrible and I won't be able to be very close the the mats where the kids are doing their thing.
Which means I need a long fast lens and right now I just don't have that in my bag. I'm saving for such a lens, but it's going to be a while.
SO ... I have a 2 part question for you guys .... (1) what lens would you recommend (for my Nikon D80 body)? and (2) is there a mail order lens rental place that you would recommend? There is no local lens rental place. I'd have to drive to Houston (2 hours from here) to possibly find a place.
TIA for any suggestions.
