LOL i was thinking "damn thats a good shot" then I scrolled down and saw the spectators heads and thought "bugger"
Haha pretty much exactly what happened to me! Unfortunate!
Nice shots, but I also dislike the vignetting. Withhout it, they would be better!There is a 200mm focal length limit to AFL matches - though you could easily get around that if you add in a TC or body with crop factor etcwhat do you mean? You are not allowed to bring longer lenses? Hard to believe....
Not really. Longer would be the domain of those that are paid to take photographs there.
I'm surprised you can take in a professional camera at all. Next time I'm taking mine!
Everyone should! If you do make sure to post some photos here
Interesting that etihad says 300mm is allowed.
I based my earlier statement from here - http://www.afl.com.au/fixture/aflvenues/conditionsofentry/tabid/13642/default.aspx - lists 200mm as the limit. Would be interesting to see the actual limit
Sigma 120-300 + 2X TC would be interesting. Though might be a bit heavy with no monopod!
Gah! I knew it was 200mm somewhere, for some reason I had it in my head it was 200mm at the MCG, and 300mm at Etihad, but the 200mm was the AFL site, thanks for finding that! For AFL games it must be a limit of 200mm, and any other event at Etihad would be 300mm.
