    I would love to get an 80-200mm f2.8 or a 50-500mm, but the last thing I need is a millstone round the neck!

    hehe, these two lenses are not LONG and HEAVY enough. I was talking about 400/f2.8 above...

    Seem no way for gals to carry those big guns

    Wish we could know more about George Eastman - whether
    he had any women photographers providing support into his
    passion without complaining about him carrying his heavy equipment including his darkroom for each and every of his location shoot.

    The history of American wet-plate photography:-

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/eastman.../wetplate.html

    will give us an idea of how easy it is today just to carry a small
    35mm camera with a couple of long lenses compared to what
    George had to carry. His determination to discover and to be
    good at it makes the differences. We should be rugged and
    tough enough to challenge the traditional masters and innovators of their passion and craftmanship.

    Well I chose not to have super long prime/telephoto lens is because of its massive weight and its pretty troublesome to bring it arnd during travel. 70-200 L f4 is just all right for me
