I really want one of these monster whites... I'm betting these guys are paid low wages and could never afford to buy one of these configurations ... What a 1dmn and a 600?

I concur 400 f2.8...not too much bigger than my 300 f2.8 IS, but much heavier! The best I can say for sports photog pay is to think public school teacher range to private school teacher range.

Why Not? Would you use it if you had it? I thought the same thing you did and one day came to the realization that if I owned it I would use it. I don't own it yet but I am 3/4 of the way there in saving money for one and hope to give it to myself as a Christmas present. Photography is only a hobbie for me but a serious one.

Besides, what does that expensive diamond ring do for my wife I gave here other than give her something to show off to the other witches in the coven. (No insult intended to any women, or witches here, just my little joke:lol:) I would get more practical use out of that lens then that ring gives my wife. It just sits there on her hand. So if you would use it, consider it. You never know, you just might end up with one.

Don't you think it deters men? Oh she's married, i'll just keep staring at her, but I won't actually go over and hit on her. Rings have their purpose, i think.

I would question the "not too much bigger" bit.......although definitely agree on the weight side of things!

If a ring detered men or women there would not be so many affairs in this world. Nor does the ring have to have a diamond or diamonds in it. The point is, if we look at our lives, we have many truely useless things that we value. If the lens is something that would be used and buying it does not cause harm to the family, why not?
