        200 speed is a good bet.  I used a lot of 100 speed but I also used
my 20-35 zoom frequently and could hand hold it at 1/30 and still get very
sharp shots. My zoom was a 3.5-4.5 which is not exactly fast, but may be
faster than the Superzoom, which makes the 200 even a better choice - for
good measure you might even want to throw in some rolls of 400.  Are you
taking slides or prints?  If you're going to make big prints off of these
shots, I would try to stay with the 200.
