I was hoping to get some advice/ equipment recommendations for my upcoming side gig this fall. I am an amateur and need some help. I will be shooting college football this season and here is what I have. Nikon D300s with nikkor 70-300 VR lens, and nikkor 18- 55 VR. Is this enough to get started? I realize the equipment won't make the photo but I was hoping for some help. I've heard a lot of talk that the 70-200 is a better option for sports photography but why? Also have heard that the VR won't make a difference and actually might slow the AF. Can I get by with the 70-300 or should I get a different lens? Also, as this will be my first actual shoot, any other equipment recommendation? Monopod? Rain gear? Other necessary lenses? I may have a few games under the lights. I wil be shooting mostly from the sidelines. Any advice is much appreciated!
