    unless u are allowed to be at the courtside, u will end up capturing wide area shots. ur lens does not have enough zoom to capture close-up action.

    it's not really about the range, and more about the speed if you want to take those action. For floorball, i think a minimum of 1/500 is needed. No choice pump ISO, and hope for the better. If not really no choice, take people receiving ball etc etc.

    Just my 2 cents.

    well if its a one off event, you can consider just renting a lens.. something like the 135 f/2L or 85 f/1.8 would do nicely for an indoor sport such as floorball..
