Last time I was at the Japanese garden in Portland, I was almost got kicked out for brining a pro camera. I had to convince them that I'm not here for a commercial shoot.

yes, they have very strict guidelines regarding photography there. extra charges for tripods and "pro" shoots only on a case by case basis. they have an odd "no portraits" rule but everyone is snapping shots of each other so i think it really applies to pro shoots for money. interestingly there were a number of DSLRs there and a couple larger than the D700, i think someone with a D3 and another with a 1D mark something or other... fortunately when you're shooting with a prime like the 35 f2, the camera seems almost smaller than those APS-C DSLRs with their zooms, and especially smaller than the big guys with their telephotos... thats's just not how i roll...
