DANG Mike... that's a badass lens you got there. You spent some cash on that one!

I'm looking to upgrade my glass here pretty soon. I'm hoping to get this one right here... http://www.beachcamera.com/shop/prod...sku=CN70200F4L

Do you do professional photography? Are you the official MSRH photo guy? If so... I'd like to pick your brain sometime at a trackday.

Thanks! The pro guy for the trackdays has a site at http://sportshots.smugmug.com/. I'd like to one day be able to do pro photography. I'm still learning a lot and practicing whenever I can. The pro is using a Nikon 70-200 VR, runs about $1600! I wasn't happy with the reach on the 200mm for what I was shooting so I just ordered a 70-300mm VR Nikon. I've spent way too much cash on this stuff lately. :laughing6

That Canon looks nice; the reviews are good on it.

:laughing6 No way, it is perfect for walkaround use. Just not enough reach from the sidelines for what I want to do. The 18-200 is starting to be more readily available than before. I got it from B&H when it showed up in stock a few weeks ago for $750.

I need a lense with a little more reach but, you should be able to get some great ones out there.

A couple I got of James and Mike from T6.

MSRH T6?



It looks different at 100+mph. I think that is the first time I have ever seen the outside of the turn.

dude hope u r better now.
wat u said above btw, i think is the perfect way thru that turn. its a pretty sweet turn, almost as much fun as TWS (Texas World Speedway) T7. sorry u crashed there though...the wrong place to crash .. like bill at TWS (Texas World Speedway) t7...
