    I went in with my 18-200mm.
    Im quite sure it isnt a problem. Maybe the f2.8 made the lens look bigger than they really are???

    People talking using 300mm or 400m , below 500mm right? but with 2X TC,
    that is 600 or 800mm liao..
    So they reduce to 150mm liao..why? Why not 200mm & is 150mm?
    Beause for standard, 200mm lens x 1.5X crop X 2X TC = 600mm
    150mm lens X 1.5X crop X 2X = 450mm..
    So max on 150mm allow.. ha ah ha...

    i went there at about 1550hours just about 10minutes before they close,
    the person who check my bag was very relax. didn't really check me carefully.
    he asked if my lens was more than 1200mm.

    Yes, on static display.

    I see photos of the open house already available on Flickr. But I don't see any flypast of planes, only helos.

    Thumbs up Re: RSAF Open House 2008

    2 things that discourage me to go:
    1 Limit on the long lens
    2 Expected bad weather.

    I guess I will skip this. Unless there is some confirmation on this long lens issue and the weather turned out to be better, like yesterday afternoon.
    Do not be afraid [of ghost and bullies] Shoot them......

    Just came back from ICT (1 last one more to go woohoos!), Sembawang Airbase. Very knnb wet weather since last week (exercise area also kena flooded like nobody's biz). The weather outlook reports more optimistic than it is on the ground (I have been eyeing the nea website for 2 weeks!) lar....unless you can tahan sort of light drizzle for a couple of hours type. LOL!

    CH-47, AH-64 see until sian.

    You will need to be there at 0800 latest, else the queue really forms + airport road will jam like crazy. Else you can spend 2-4hrs+ queueing for carpark, shuttle bus, SBS bus, and then at the main entrance. Beyond 0900hrs, taking cab to just outside airport road and walking about 1km to the entrance is the fastest.

    By the time you see the !@%!@# queue and wanna abort/turn back, too late and too bad, cannot even return coz you will be stuck in the bus/car/cab. Sayonara.

    They scan my bag. but they never ask me to open it up to show them what is inside. neither did they ask me what lenses i'm bringing in.
    But i notice one thing. those primary school kids need not put their bags through the metal detactor. they merely "scan" their bags with naked eyes. so maybe you can hide big lenses inside your kids bag.
