    Yeah, I do too. I created a group on Flickr for pics of photographers... but hasn't found any interest yet by others. :lol:


    I wonder what that HUGE lens is in the 2nd to last photo. And, how much does it weigh? I don't think I would want to schlepp that thing around.:)

    Looks like a 400 f/2.8, maybe a 500 f/4, kinda hard to tell from that angle. Yeah, they are heavy.

    Hooray, all Nikons! #4 looks like the 600mm with a huge lens hood!

    :lol:

    At first I thought the same thing until this thought ran through my mind: How long would I have to save to buy a 400mm.

    Seems like a pretty wide range of equipment there, is that a D1X in the first shot? A D200 and then a guy with a pair of D3s. I would think that a pro invest a bit more than a D200 and an old D1x but I guess it doesn't matter.

    the dual D3's is what grabbed my attention....after the monster lens obviously. The glass is so big on that mug your pictures should be sharp enough to see the stitching on the uniforms.
