Inspired by the latest caption competition:
Is it just the guys who carry cameras with big lenses?
Or do the gals as well?
And what does it say about either of them?

Well I havent, yet! But I would be interested to know who has....
I haven't got a big lens but I'd like one!
I don't have a big lens!
I have (fixed) 50, 75 and 150mm lenses!
But, then again, I drive a Mini, so...
Poor Collinf He only has ickle things
I guess I'm slightly guilty. I'm usually using a Sigma 50-500mm. There's probably something Freudian in there.....
Then again, given the 50-500 is pretty heavy I always claim carrying it is a substitute for weight lifting/regular exercise.
My wife doesn't complain!
And when I can produce photos like this with my ickle things, I ain't complaining either! lol
Ooh very nice Collin!
As a gal, to use your terminology I do have a large lense a 70-200VR and 180mm Macro, both hefty beasts.
I think it says I take my photography seriously and want the best I can afford. I also love the look on some blokes face when his wife/girlfriend points out that I have a bigger lense.
Little bit more exposure on the car next time, would bring out the colour a bit.
"I also love the look on some blokes face when his wife/girlfriend points out that I have a bigger lense."
Says you like to indulge in one-up-manship, Cheryl!!! LOL
Biggest lens I've ever had was a 70-210mm. Guess that isn't all that big.
Well you know what they say about blokes who drive big cars...... "overcompensation" !!!
Maybe that applies to lenses as well?
But carabosse - how does that apply to the ladies?
210mm is 8.25 inches.
But it's not really that big because of the telephoto construction.
Example: 100mm @ 70mm focal length, 130mm @ 210mm focal length. (Push-pull single touch type).
Hmmm... never seen a lady with what I would call a big lens, say 300mm or above!
I don't think Cheryl's lenses are that big.
