I don't have any SLR zooms at the moment.  I've only ever owned one, and that's because it was $10.  At the moment I would *love* a couple of nice f/2.8 zooms, especially an 80-200 f/2.8, but my money tree is out of season.  I find primes tend to get in the way when doing sports photography as good vantage points can be difficult to get and changing lenses is far too time-consuming.
