I was yelled at for not using "L" glass.

There's even "wrong L" prejudice!

I shoot as many times as I can at Bosque del Apache NWR, NM every winter. You always see several $Million in gear there over the day.

They don't verbalize it, but they certainly sneer at my 100-400, as though I don't deserve a space next to their noble 400/2.8 IIs, 500/4 IIs, 600/4s and 800/5.6s. It was even worse when I had my Sig 120-400.

The Nikon guys won't even look at you, their disgust runs so deep.

I ignore them and have fun. Most of them have a permanent grimace on their face, as if it's the last place in the world they wanted to be. For me, there was no place I'd rather be. Bite me, 800-Man, bite me.
