  1. Hi everyone,

    I was asked to shoot figure skating but I'm not a professional. I
    haven't given an answer yet but I was wondering if I want to do that
    what king of lens will I need. I will be renting Nikon lens(es).
    Thank you!
  2. Ahh my specialty. :) You *must* have a f2.8 lens unless you're under television lighting, and even then it is still preferable. Ideal lens is 80-200 f2.8. I have used an f2.8 200mm prime with great results but I don't mind closeups. Make sure to use a monopod as well.
