"A 1.4X or 2X teleconverter?  A 1.4X teleconverter eats one stop of light, a 2X teleconverter eats 2 stops.  Without a top of the line body and lens, adding a teleconverter will cause auto-focus to slow down a lot or fail completely…"

Hi I'm looking for a good quality sports lens. the main use would be for gymnastics photography which means I need high shutter speed and a low f-stop like around f1 or so.  I'm also looking for quick auto focus and good quality pictures. And my price range would be around $100-150. Please reply if you have any suggestions thanks in advance :)See More
