What would be a good beginner telephoto lens that is suitable for taking pictures of sporting action?
I will be spending a few months in Europe on an exchange program and I hope to attend some of their sporting events. However I am only likely to be able to afford the cheaper tickets (i.e. high up in the stands and far from the action) hence I would like to seek some advice on what would be a suitable lens.
I am only a beginner, using a Canon 1000D.
Thank you very much in advance.
