Fogged-up front element? Or just an odd reflection?

It does appear that way, but I think it's because his hood is taped on in a half-arse manner. If you cover up the hood with your hand, the actual lens barrel looks to be straight.

He doesn't seem to really care about his gear though. :neutral:

He is using a Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 18-270 PZD. Same lens I was using, so I lent him my CPL filter, and then accidentally swiped his Tamron lens hood, thinking it was mine. Pretty embarrasing to find I had 2 of them in my sweatshirt pocket, but he was nice about it. He also had another body with a longer lens hanging from a strap (seen behind him) but I never saw him use it and am not sure what it is.

Not sneaky... cold! Well, it seemed like a warm day, but the wind was strong and cold. He was watching a large flock of gulls or some-such, waiting for sunset and determined to get a shot of them taking off with the sunset in the background. I gave up and started walking back, and about 15 minutes later I heard an amazing noise - he was right, they all took off as the sun went down, and I hope he got the shot.

And this combo is delicious! Looks more tempting than the 100-400L.

How do people manage to mistreat their gear like that? It looks horrible and makes me sad even.

That's just were and tear on a very well used lens.

Alex, I have to say that the last thing I noticed was the camera...that amazing dress caught my eye and held it! :D

Go ruin a 18-55 lens intead of a 300f/2.8 for god's sake.

I'm not sure what you mean by "mistreat"? If you are referring to some dings on the white lens, well, those lenses and the long wide hoods will pick up some dings over time if you are working with them as "working tools" rather than babying them.

I've picked up a ding here, a ding there, because I'm out through whatever terrain I need to go through to get a shoot, and sometimes something will get "bumped", and with the white paint it just doesn't take much to show a "ding" up. Fortunately, the hoods take more than the body of the lens itself, although I recently put my 24-70 up for sale and it wasn't until I was examinging it preparing to take photos of it for my EBay/Craig's List/POTN ads that I noticed a scrape over a part of the body, with no idea of how it happened, and it's not even white:)!

And no, I don't carelessly abuse my gear!

I guess... I've used my 55-250 very well before and it was in great condition, but then again it's not a massive 300.

If I did own a piece of glass like that I would keep it in the state that I bought it in. I shoot aviation mainly so that would not get my lens dirty (usually) so I am probably not used to thinking that a lens can me mistreated like that when shooting closeup sports etc.

I'd say that 300 has probably paid for itself several times over...

Good to see it's been used and used well. Despite the scratches, scrapes and the need to gaffer tape the hood on, it's still out there working!

Ought to be in a Canon Ad! :D
With Chuck Norris...

Go shoot a professional Motorsports event right on the fence. You will see how quickly things can get dirty.

If you really want a "WTF?" moment, go look at the camera well during a World Series game...

A whole bunch of large white lenses with NO HOODS!

Professional courtesy dictates you shoot without a hood when the well is really full.
