Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro(Motorized)
SHOOT: Sometimes it's good to have an 'in-between' lens. You get your humongous lenses and then you get your ordinary lenses, but what about improving the mid-range, a lens that isn't too specialised; won't blur if you make a small movement while shooting, and won't turn an eagle flying directly overhead into a speck. And you want to use it for sports? Well this is a very useful, versatile piece of equipment, and it won't break your budget either.
