I ahve an Olympus c2100 (well two of em) and all the add ons.. teleconverters, flash etc.

I do sports photography and want to take the next step .. DSLR

I Have a small budget so am looking for used equipment. I am told a canon D60 would be good and at £550 to £600 would leave me around £400 to spend on a lens, Looking at sigma 70-200 f2.8

Am I on the right track for sports photography and a camera that will better my UZI

Is there another I should be looking at in this price range?

Any help appreciated

Instead of a D60, which is noted for its bad focusing system, I would recommend a 10D. Since it is recently discontinued due to the 20D's release, you should be able to find one at a very resonable price. I certainly love mine!

There isn't too much price difference between the d60 and 10d as I can get a refurb 10d in the UK with 6 month warranty for699 UKP

For sport photography (football or soccer?) what would be the best lens for me. I am a real novice in this area so any advive and price guide welcome.. Looking for used not new

I am used to x10 optical with IS

Well, as far as lenses, that isn't something I can give you a straight answer on.

Fast and long is the best advice I could give, but I don't really do sports photography, so hopefully someone more expirienced can help!
