I'd take the 18-55 for ground shots and the 70-300 for the air

Then that is what i shall do.

18 55 to chase the kids around then the 300 to chase jets...

If i get lucky i'll post some pics...

Yip, I'd have to agree on the choice. A DA* 60-250 would be nice though

So the SnowBirds are back in Toronto deadprez? They were here at YYT Aug 22/23 and left just before hurricane Bill started but I had a wedding to shoot on the 22nd and work the next day. I heard them but didn't see a thing.

Lately it seems like there following me.

I have been hearing them as early as 11:00 flying around over the city.
I see them when I go out for my lunch break and the I then see them again on my walk to the train to commute home.

I guess not everyone is happy about this: | The Ex | Grumbles, roars trail fighter jets

Apparently the old people in the city are spilling there coffee.

In all honesty tho the sound they make does not even compare to what you actually here in a war zone. Those sonic booms are so loud that I would remember the condo unit structure rattle and the
windows smash.
