Redbull Air Race NYC
5 Attachment(s)
Went to the air race today. Think it would be one of a few time a 500mm or 600mm lens would have come in handy

at those distances even 600mm would be far too short. Those types of races are fun to watch but you need to be on a boat to get decent shots.

When I was shooing, I heard a 1dmkIV go off behind me, I turn and saw a pro strap with 2 1d bodys attach to him with a 500L and 600L on a monopole, he seem to have gotten some decent shots, with those big boys. But the results did not fill the frame. But I know there is no way I would consider carrying something that big around with me. :)

In the right light, the Canon SX-30 would have a chance, but it have problems focusing as well.
