    Heh, if thats the case, then just pass me one of his 400 F2.8.

    On a serious note, I dont really think anyone wants to just throw away the couple thousands.

    na. had a time trying to figure out how to use the 400 DO with a 20D... unwieldly long on a 1.6x body!

    wished that i brought along a CF card to test the images though. was in a rush yesterday, so no card...

    I am happy to reveal that I shoot alone in my "home studio". I have never brought my camera out of my home in the last 4 and half years. No one is there to block me except my shadow.

    In a fistfight/tussle, your 400 2.8 might get in the way and you may be more worried making sure it doesn't get damaged than the amateur who's out to annoy you anyway.
    I've never had a lens get in the way, but then again to be fair I normally apologise to the guy straight after hitting him with the usual apology being "oh sorry mate, you ok? I didn't see you" .. that tends to diffuse the situation while leaving the offending idiot with a clear idea to keep out of my way.

    I should also point out that I'm really generous when shooting. I usually always let amateurs duck in front of me to get a shot, providing they a) ask first and b) it's not a critical point in the proceedings and c) it's a public event, as opposed to a closed photoshoot, e.g: catalogue shoot with models etc.

    I don't think you know just how tough pro gear actually is. A couple of years back I watched in horror as my new Nikkor AFS-400/2.8 bounced off a concrete floor after it fell off a 1m high table at a race meeting. A bit of a dent in the front of the lens but otherwise the lens was 100% functional.

    I'm not going to get in to a long winded discussion on the morals of what happened. Far worse happens in the press corps when covering high profile court cases for example, or when drunk punters are involved (those are the worst cases you can get outside of war combatants).

    It's interesting to see how the thread is escalating when the threadstarter is the only one involved in the incident.

    Seems like a lot of pent up frustrations among some.
