Re: Which Lens???


That was definitely the hardest part of the trip. Not to mention, 3 tripods, 7 light stands, backgrounds, tons of batteries and chargers to keep the flashes going.

I didn't have any room in my luggage to bring back any Ecuador coffee.

All images were taking with my 500 f/4 except the Swordbill which was taken with the 200-400 f/4 V1.


The pictures are impressive.

But you lugged a D4, 500mm, 200-400mm, 7 strobes, a tripod, stands for the strobes, and other paraphernalia to and around Ecuador?

Now that is really impressive.

Getting a D3, one small lens, and a flash on a short domestic flight to LA is painful enough. I can't even imagine what you must have gone through. How does one do that?
