    Hi seany. I dont think the regular kit lens would do this job so upgrade I did. :devil:

    Canon 20D
    Canon 300mm f/2.8 Prime
    Canon 2.0X Converter... Although yesterday I used a 1.4X

    My kit.. :eek:

    I think the Iraqis will agree :zonked:

    As for that shot of your camera your way to close to that wall to take a photo ;)

    Enough p*$$ taking.....great shots . As for that lens I'm not sure I could cope with the attention you would recieve walking round with that ....talk about Lens envy from the point & shoot guys :laugh:
