    I really need to see one go up. Twice as a kid I missed it due to delays.

    If so, what lens do you need for good shot? Aren't you like a mile away?

    35 1.8 is probably fine. Just move around to get the shot.

    Your 55-200 would be perfect.

    Use one of those super-sharp entry-level lenses you keep jocking.

    man, you're so easy to fuck with. I don't even want to give a serious reply.


    you're going to be at least 7 miles away. Unless you're in the press box, then you'll be 3-3.5 miles away... you're going to need a VERY powerful lens to shoot this. The guys that get the good shots use 400+mm lenses.

    your 55-200 will do the job though. it's practically L glass.

    You know, except it's Nikon.

    They also make 2X TC's for those so it could be 2000mm f/16.

    Of course the real problem at 2000mm is making sure you have an incredibly steady tripod, are using some kind of remote release, and are using MLU.
