    Streeter Lecka seems like an awesome photographer.

    The 200-400 is my holy grail of lenses. Now that Im Nikon, I dont think Id ever buy a 300/2.8 or 400/2.8. Id just rock that 200-400

    lol, 200-400 is awesome, but f/4 is lame.

    2.8 is the way to go.

    Says the guy with a 400/2.8 :o

    Having shot a 400/2.8 @ f/4, theres really no discernible difference. Id rather have the utility of a zoom and constant f/4 than be pigeonholed into one focal length. Everyone is different though.

    I guess I wasn't very stealth with my cell phone camera

    He was cool as hell! He didn't really seem to like having that video up though LOL

    ^I was shooting beside him at the sidelines of the orange bowl for a bit. :cool:


    i know, it was a joke... i'd still choose the 400 for what I shoot.

    Harry How seems like a pretty cool dude, just watched a video on him talking about his gear. Seems real down to earth (as much as you can get watching him talk for ~15 minutes)
