Oh ... I use the 70-200 without the TC, for hockey. I also use it for soccer, on full frame for action right in front of me, as well as for more of an editorial style. I actually usually shoot Toronto FC stuff with the D300 + 300 2.8 + 1.4, and then the D3 + 70-200.
Shot high school soccer today with the D3 + 300 w/1.4 though.
Haven't really gone through the gallery yet. Photos aren't straightened either as I do that to order for the most part, but there's some in there. Only thing I hate, is that with field turf ... the heat waves off of the rubber cause soft photos over 45 yards or so sometimes.
