Get the Gen 1 100mm f/2.8, it's a great lens and being an older generation will save you a few bucks. I loved mine. When I sold my T5i it was the only lens I kept of all the lenses I had, and had it not been stolen I'd be shooting Canon gear still today. It's a great portrait lens too.

For handheld shooting, yea, but corals lend themselves really well to tripods. Shooting fish was easiest for me with a fast shutter speed (1/1000+) and fairly open aperture (5.6ish). The DOF from not being wide open was a bit more forgiving than shooting wide open. The fast shutter speed helps with capturing motion because they are NOT going to sit still for you while you line up a shot.

My name's Nate, not Nikon. In case it wasn't clear.
