The problem is they don't really say! I know the more "pro" Nikon lenses are well sealed but I'm not sure which ones those are, I guess those with more knowledge than me can state which is which, but I wish they would make it more obvious like Pentax does.

A couple for ZK - this Catalina taking off and landing all day at Taupo, but never getting very close to me so these are heavily cropped.

Well Sigma's latest announcement that they aren't going to produce Pentax-mount lenses any more makes me glad I jumped ship years ago, I would die without my Sigma 120-300 f2.8! Though Nikon have announced they are working on one, probably twice the price.
I realise that none of you regulars would be int he same boat as me :)

Nice work, my understanding is that not everyone even makes it that far.

I'm not sure I had fun or not yet taking thousands of photos at the Games. Maybe I'll make up my mind when the pay comes in, not that it will be a lot, I did it more for the experience. It was tiring work sometimes, other times easy. It was shot week so being inside in air-conditioned environments shooting snooker wasn't too bad! But outside shooting soccer wandering around 4 fields trying to get a shot of every competitor was trying.

Shooting squash from up high and just getting tops of heads and backs wasn't that fulfilling, but some of the social events were fun, and all the competitors and officials were good to us and always keen for a chat about their sport. The netball tent had zero non-alcoholic drinks, and I was told, after asking for one, "this is netball".

Our mandate was to get shots of everyone, getting good shots was secondary, so it was a different way of thinking.

Met up with Transit, Gub and Class A for a drink and meal, some photographic talk was had, and some political! I'm happy for Transit to put the photo up if the others are.

@Transit - I'm heading your way next week, got roped into taking photos at the Masters Games for the week. Not sure how it's going to pan out, if I will have any spare time or not, it's all new territory for me, might be fun, might be just hard work! :eek: Nights may be editing.

If any of you are going to be there look out for the tall, good looking, curly haired guy with the amazing Nikon gear! ;) Give me a yell.

Did it a few years ago in my long Commodore wagon, easy peasy, though that particular ford I think I went through a little more on an angle.
