    135 f2, 200 f2, 300 2.8.

    much chear alternative is the sigma 70-200 f2.8. If not, no other lenses can do it. Can forget about taking indoors with an F4 or slower lens.

    In my experience, f2.8 may not be enough.My fav was 85mm f1.4/f1.8 on a cropped body.The rest are too ex except for the 105/135mm f2 DCs

    Photography was actually allowed for this event but no flash photography which will distract the players.
