Neuro, thanks for the hood tip. Sorry I couldn't keep the thread going today. We're not bringing monopods with us, just the tripod rigs. I also wonder now if the firmware that was released in August will be incorporated in our rentals. If not, we'll persevere. Hell, just having the $10,500 lenses on our 7D's will be incentive enough to find something of interest! Maybe we'll bring back some images to share here with ya'll. Thanks again fellow Canon shooters.
