I'm completely in agreement as far as this idea having merit! I will be trying to come up with some ideas this winter and if I do I'll post. I have an upholstery machine so I can experiment quite a bit.
I like to brag how strong I am too but after refusing to put the 300 X2 down for several minutes because something exhilerating is about to happen, my arms have nearly collapsed.
Never the less, after a good season of shooting I, like AlanF, like my freedom too much to go to a pod unless there is a very compelling reason. And as much as I'd like more reach I simply won't be going heavier than 300. I wonder if we could fill our lenses with helium.
Actually I'm wondering what a 7D2 might achieve with my preferred light 300 X2 - any comment AlanF?
