Heh! Fortunately those white primes are good rugged "workhorses"! Even the front element, which is actually a "protective filter", is quite tough!

But the more actively you shoot with one, the more it will tend to accumulate dings in that white paint. 'Course, if you specialize in shooting "tame" things/venues all the time, well sure, you can keep it pretty pristine barring the occasional accidental bump, but for many of us that's just not the way it works!

I was fortunate that when I sold my 300 f/2.8 IS it was just the hood that had noticeable dings. And the guy who brought it just couldn't help but smile at the test images he shot -- he was like "Wow, this takes really sharp shots!", and I smiled, and he left with a great lens and I was left with a pocket full of $$:)!

Same thing with my 70-200 f/2.8 IS (sold a couple days ago) -- dings on the hood, but the body was in real good shape, a guy shows up, never said a peep about the hood, but boy he was happy chimping his test shots, left with the lens a very happy camper!

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.

If you're hired and being paid to shoot an event by the event organizers, you basically have to shoot the event in what ever conditions exist.

Believe me, my wife was not happy that we had to sit outdoors in the pouring rain for the entire day for this rodeo we covered

HAHA!! There was another photographer who was trying to cover the event. She had a Nikon with the 18-55 version of their Kit lens and she had a 50 gallon black garbage bag over her camera. I was laughing so hard because the bag was so big, she could barely find the camera due to all the extra baggage.

I wish I would have taken a photo of it, but she was following me around the entire time thinking she'd stand beside me where ever I was and get the same shots I was getting??? :confused:

A good effort by a fit photographer from earlier this week. You can't tell from this photo but he did have a bit of work to do to get up on top of that rock in Death Valley at sunrise.

From a recent political event, a mom obviously doing a bit of freelance.

Speaking of abused lenses. I thought that earlier photo showed a 2X teleconverter attached. What that looked like to me was either the guy was an old pro or had purchased the lens from a newspaper. PJs who use company property rarely take the same care that they would with their own equipment. While most PJ pros take good care of their stuff, some are hard on their equipment or go to places that put the equipment at risk -- not to mention what can happen to the PJ.
