Hello!

I just bought my first digital SLR, a Nikon D70, with the Standard 18/70 Nikkor lens. Can anyone tell me which lenses will be good for sports photography? I have been taking photo's of the local rugby and soccer teams on the island with a Olympus C8080 WZ, and got some really excellent shots, but I have decided to move on since I'm having a great time doing it.

I need a lens which will do some pretty fast autofocussing, and it needs to be affordable... ( preferably under $300 since I'm not making money from it... YET!! :G )

That's a tough ask at that budget.

If you're able to track down a Nikkor AF 70-210 f/4 (not f/4-5.6), that might do. These were very rare and only made for about 18mths or so I think, back in the late 80s.
