This has been my biggest problem ever since I got that 500L...
My own family is staying away from me because I look so peculiar with a lens that size!

Try to walk around any vacation resort with that BIG WHITE lens, and you'll know what I mean. It get even worse around the airports when you run out of room (for stuffing all this duty-free liquid through security after customs)! :-) :-) :-)

I just wish that black leather hood could be made larger so it can extend out and hide away the whole lens thing...
-> This is why a small dSLR couple to an equally small but powerful lens will be such a welcomed alternative

and they will call it the Rain Dance which is suppose to bring good luck :evil::G

But how do u carry it in the flight. I have had problems with just my camera bag alone. It was heavy with all the equipments and the AW Trekkers arent light ones.

I am guessing the airlines do have some concession with camera equipments.
