Great shots Bryan. Just wondering... how did you get into the
stadium with your "pro" equipment? I thought most of pro sports (and
other events too) were searching all bags and not allowing people
with "pro" equipment in. I'm not saying your gear isn't "pro". You
know what I mean;).

Hi jmophotos,

Thanks for the compliments. Their stadium policies have no restriction on camera body, although I doubt I'd get my MkIIn thru the gates. They do have an 8" lens limit, and my 200 f/2.8 + 1.4x TC combined measure 7", but I always get hassled at the gate and they end up measuring my lens. I help them out by bringing a plastic 12" ruler with me, so that there is no guesswork in determining I fall within their requirements. It also helps that the 200 f/2.8 is a black lens, and not the "professional" looking white lens. First game I attended back in June, I tried to get my 300 f/4L IS lens in (8-1/2"), and they would not let me in. Its been the 200 f/2.8 + 1.4x TC ever since.
