question

Buying a Nikon D3200 in August. Somewhat newbie to this DSLR scene. Looking for some good lenses for reasonable amounts. The first lens I need is one to capture my sons' football, rugby and lacrosse games from about 25-50 yds out. In my mind I am thinking 500mm/800mm lens, but that may be way off base. I will have a good tripod for the camera/lens as well, but would like a lighter lens, if possible for the cost.Any assistance here would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.

That 800mm lens is manual T mount lens and f/8. So it is very slow and dark in the finder. It is not really a sports lens and will need to manually focus the lens. And to use that lens you need an lens adapter.For sports and that camera you can get away with a 500mm lens or smaller. And they should be autofocus.These are links for ones that will do the job and work with your camera. But they do cost more.http://bhpho.to/Jp24xlhttp://bhpho.to/Isgywdhttp://bhpho.to/JzZ9lZ

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes that will work on a Minolta Maxxum with the correct adapter. The adapter needs to be a Sony Alpha/Minolta Maxxum. This is one, http://bhpho.to/1l1XFOlThe lens has an f/stop ring that is f/8-f/32.

Asked by: danny o.
You would need a T-mount adapter to connect the Bower 500mm f/8 Manual Focus Telephoto T-Mount Lens to your Canon EOS DSLR camera. The Vello Lens Mount Adapter - T Mount Lens to Canon EOS Camera, B&H # VELACEFT, would work for your needs.
