    No worries about the info.

    Now we wait for the official RSAF Open House 2011 website for lens restrictions.

    Cheers.

    want small, long range and light? use the Olympus m.zuiko 75-300mm.. (equivalent to a 150-600mm in 35mm context), just 430g..

    the question now is the speed of af of this lens is probably not fast enough though

    'traditional lenses' with 70-200, 70-300 and 100-400 shouldnt be an issue based on previous experience.

    Thank you all!

    I went to the last show, but back then I was armed only with a PnS... Hence I have no idea what the limit was...

    No worries, even with the 2X TC... I don't think it can beat the true focal length lenses... (soft details also)
    70-200 is really nothing spectacular either (it's all that I have - for other uses)... Just don't want to log all that weight and still end up cannot use...

    By the way, other than the Airbase itself, is there any other good spots for shooting during the open house. I know Post Center is quite a good spot if the landing direction is correct.

    I thought it was 300mm... Straits Times publish as 300mm.
