I brought a 400mm 2.8 on the day and no monopod. I am not one to get in the way of payin fans with a huge lens like that. Plus, the angles for shooting without a credential is really tough at Wimbledone.

400mm Yikes, I was worried about upsetting people with my 70-200mm!

I proberbly walked straight past you when Lee was playing! Next time you go, will you take the 400mm again or something smaller?

Just pay off the people around them, or promise them some photos.

My 400mm is very noticeable, the lens hood is painted like Eddie VanHalens frankenstein guitars. I had a few people taking pics of it. I was on the overhead position on court 18 when lee was playing.
When I go back I won't bring a big lens like that, but rather a selection of small zooms and a wide angle. There are so many neat things to be photographed around the grounds that don't involve action. I just brought the 400mm in an attempt to get a good tennis shot for my portfolio.

That is very very tough from the stands. Heck for sports, its one of the harder ones to get a portfolio shot.

Court 18 has a great upper level for viewing, that is the only reason I dragged it down to SW19.
