    As mentioned earlier, i want to use the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens.
    It weights about 1.3kg? should i bring a tripod and shoot the aerial display? or just hold in my hand like any other lens to shoot?

    Btw, are the white canon lens telephoto? what's the difference between a telephoto and normal lens?

    interesting point....got enough space to deploy tripod?

    telephoto is usually reserved for lenses that are in the range of 300mm. More then that is ultra telephoto.

    Don't have an example shot to show, but with 200mm, you can still take shot of an aerial display, but the subjects (planes) you are shooting will appear smaller.

    HTH.

    Okay. I guess 300mm zoom is okay. but 400mm should be just right.. Although 500mm would be really good.... LOL

    we can always use tele converter for those without the 600mm lens. the daylight should be more than enough for us to shoot even @ f16? but say 200mm x 2 = 400mm shutter speed =1/400s @ f11? seems possible to me.

    Hope that helps you to review your question. You also might want to have a look at the existing images posted here by other members. EXIF data and comments will show you the equipment. Make your own conclusions.

    Want to take the chance to take some good shots.

    What body from canon should i use? Lens?

    Please advise.

    Thanks
    Just wondering...got so many Canon bodies that you can decide meh? I was also wondering which camera to use? Will it be my D700 or my D700 or maybe my only D700. Please...bring whatever camera you got. Bring along a long lens for airplane photos and a wide lens for interesting close ups. Choosing a camera usually is a no brainer. Choosing what to take is more important. Everbody can take a snapshot but few can take a photo.

    hopefully its a bright and sunny day otherwise the the 1~2 stop light reduction on teleconverters can be very bad.
