I purchased my first DSLR camera about a year ago. Having no experience with DSLR's but willingness and desire to learn it on my own, I have pretty much tried every setting imaginable on the camera. I take a lot of pictures of family, sunsets and sunrises, but mainly purchased this particular camera to get some good action shots of my daughter's high school basketball team. We are involved/volunteers at the football games too which are mainly at night time. I know that lighting in the gyms are so different and football games might start in the daylight hours and end in the dark. About 6 months ago, I purchased the Nikor 70-200mm f/2.8 ED VRll lens. I spoke to several photographers around the gym and this seemed to be the lens of choice. Guess my D5000 wasn't the best camera after all. Now, I am hoping seeking to find the right camera for the job. I have seen some great football shots with the D90 and my lens. I would appreciate any input or suggestions. Also I have a mono/tri pod that I can use at these games so weight of the camera really isn't an issue. Price is an issue. I have 4 kids still living at home and 3 are in college, the other she's my bball player. Thank you in advance for your input.
