So Jay Aquino when was the last time you traveled Internationally with that lot? For the last 8 months 1 major International Airline has been weighing carry on's at the check in counter and people with more than 10 kgs, in 2 separate bags, have been forced to put the excess into their check in luggage, then pay the excess. Maybe its different over your way but in the Asian/Pacific region if one airline does something they all tend to follow suit. If the industry is talking about charging overweight people extra, and they are, then it stands to reason that carry ons will be the first thing that comes under scrutiny.
I'd like someone to do a review on which airlines would allow you to carry on one of these bags. 10kgs limit in 2 separate bags for International flights and 7kgs for domestic and some airline cabin crew are complaining that even that is too heavy. Given that they tell you not to put anything of value, including laptops, in your check in luggage how is a photographer supposed to carry his equipment. I've had people say this airline or that airline is OK but not in the Asia/Pacific region.
Gary Dean Mercer Clark: I only wonder about the comment that a ten percent increase in resolution is worth investing in a new camera system that will require spending even more more money to upgrade existing lenses to really extract the potential of the sensor? Sigma is addressing the newer super high generation sensors with new lens offerings like the 35mm f1.4 for APC cameras and the soon to be released 30mm f 1.4 for full frame cameras in their " Art" series as well as major upgrades to their other lens lines. Competition is great for photographers. Maybe these tests will prompt the manufacturers to really push the lens technology to take full advantage of these higher resolution sensors. I just wonder how much further optical technology can be pushed to match these super high resolution sensors. Where is the limit?

I think you've got that the wrong way round, at least I hope you have. I just ordered the new Sigma 35f1.4 and my guy in Saigon knows I've got a 5DM2 and will soon be purchasing the ''3''.
With a name like Airport Navigator are they suggesting you can carry it onboard international and domestic flights? Good luck with that one! If there's an airline that has a carry on allowance of more than 10kgs in two seperate bags for international flights and 7kgs for domestic flights in the Asia/Pacific region, please let me know.
