Lens Envy...

I was getting myself lined up to catch 'the' shot of Granddaughters doubles row down to the finnish line, when this guy came and stood right in front of me .. I think he would of been able to capture every single bead of sweat on their brows.. he was also sporting a very fancy vest that said ' Media'... Well I am quite happy with my 28-300 it is far easier to carry around...
GD and buddy got through to the semi finals tomorrow...
Ha - did you yell at him to get out of the way? With a lens that big, he could have set up camp in the carpark! Great results to get into the semifinals.

That is quite the lens. Would absolutely love to have one, but budget restraints really do not allow one. But then, really - how often would I actually use it? (Lots, probably - LOL!

@farmreporter You would need a Sherpa to carry it for you...

Want something like this - no. And people who have it think they can set up anywhere. Congrats on you Granddaughters placement. Hoping he find her in the finals next.

Gee whiz. A little common courtesy goes a long way. Just because he's big he doesn't have to be so inconsiderate. Glad your sweet girl is continuing to win!

Being a man of certain age I understand the need for these things, he's either got a sports car or motorbike as well

How rude of him. I think his vest should have said 'tosser' not 'media' ha ha.
