I have two comments that kinda took me by surprise because they were different from the ordinary kind of remarks you get when shooting with long glass:

1. Shooting with a 400/5.6. Guy walks by: "that'll keep you warm at night..." :rolleyes:

2. Shooting with a 300/4. I had been in the park and on my way home went to the supermarket. Got some groceries and as I was about to leave the store it started to rain. And I mean, this was a down pour. So people outside were running and I took out my 1D2n with 300/4 and started shooting as I had nothing else with me. Young guy in his twenties next to me says: "are you a spy?" I say "excuse me?" He says: "yeah, big white lens, they always use those lenses in the movies when they are spying on people. You work for the police or for the government?"
So I gently explained to him how you can use these lenses for different things than spying on people and that no, I was not working for the police or the government. True story. :D

And you expect us to believe that you're NOT a spy?

"I'm not a spy. I take my 300/4 to the supermarket with me, and I'm shooting pictures of raindrops."

Ah.. The Good Old Days when NSA, which didn't appear on any military budgets, stood for "No Such Agency" and when, coincidentally, the Military paid exorbitant prices for toilet-seats and hammers (20x the going rate).

Hell - when I am out with my gear and I have to stop for something, it goes in with me.... Last thing I need is to have to replace a broken window *and* my kit...

No, as the gear was neatly packed in a Lowepro Flipside (# something).
But, when I hosted POTN's Nifty (thread is here), I thought I would grab a shot or two of the insides of that same supermarket and as I was checking the histogram after the first shot an employee came running towards me saying I was not allowed to take photographs and needed written permission from the main office first. :lol:
Here's the shot. I wish I could have taken a better exposed shot, but alas... I still wonder what is so special about their set-up that it is secret! :rolleyes:

I have heard of the same thing happening to others..that's why I asked. I believe they were photographing the produce rack because of all the different colors...same result...

Or maybe some (or most) of their customers don't want to be randomly photographed.
