    Default To all who visit the Imperial Palace in Japan on 2nd January

    http://www.kunaicho.go.jp/e17/ed17-02.html

    Since I haven't been there, kinda curious about the distance between the bullet-proof panes and the furthest end of the courtyard.

    Anyone has been to the Imperial Palace on 2nd January and 'shot' the Emperor from that great distance?

    Just wanna find out the focal length needed (I hope it's not anything beyond 200mm on a DSLR!).

    The daylight shld be good enuff. If I use flash extender ppl would think that's a targeting receptical and the Bigma's a rocket launcher.

    Thinking whether its worth it getting a zoom for that particular shot alone or simply just forget abt it.

    500mm definitely and make sure the special service double checked your equipment.

    Damn, I think forget abt it liaoz. Can't afford that Bazooka tube unless someone lends it to me.

    Anyway, my focal length's probably up to 70mm max. Guess I'll have to go early to chope a good front spot huh?
