My job description is changing again and besides doing video they also could assign me to cover a game or an event for stills. My budget isn't great. Ideally I would like to stay under $1,000 which doesn't give me a lot of play. (Ideally 850ish with all accessories etc.) I was thinking of the Nikon D5000 because its cheaper then the Canon's (T1i/t2I) and it also has an 11 point focus system compared to 9. I was going to get the kit lens 18-55 and the 55-200mm f/4-5.6G VR DX AF-S ED Zoom-Nikkor Lens. Will the camera/lens be able to handle it? Most of the gyms lighting are awful and they normally don't allow flashes. Would I have a problem with these lenses? Since I'm not really familiar with stills, could I just leave it sports mode and let the camera do the work with pretty good results? I don't think they expect it to look like it was shot for sports illustrated but they do want it to look somewhat professional. What are your thoughts?
