    Hi everyone, bit of advice I am after. I just got hold of tickets for Wales v NZ at the millenium. I want to take my camera as I am right in on the corner at the lower level. I have a nikon d3100 and my lenses are the standard kit lens 18-55 the 55-200 and the sigma 150-500. What would your first choice lens be out of the three ? I know I will lose quality with the 500 over the two nikon lenses so would I be better off on say the 200 and really crop it in lightroom? or stick with the 500. Im also concerned that I may not be able to take my camera bag into the stadium (ruckbag style), I really aint sure if they allow them with bomb scares etc so I will prob get in touch with them first. Any suggestions much appreciated

    Millenium Stadium T&C's

    6. With the exception of persons holding official accreditation or authorisation in writing from MS plc, the taking of photographs, video photography, or other recordings inside the Stadium is prohibited.

    Your probably get away with a compact but a 150-500mm Sigma lens may be pushing it.

    If the image rights is not an issue you will find that allowable equipment is restricted to make sure you don't cause a nuisance.

    The 150-500mm will require a monopod, and before you know it you are getting in everyone's way with your camera - remembering they have also paid good money for their ticket. You should find a 200mm will be quite sufficient from up to around 10 rows back if you can get your kit in.
