Good to know that you got 2 lenses in there, was it still not obvious you had them?


I was carrying my 10-17mm FE and 60mm macro -- I don't think it was obvious I had lenses in my pockets. I did a shoot at the Western Stock Show a few weeks ago and I was carrying the 70-200mm VR in my pocket. That one was a bit more obvious :lol:

In order to snug up the Ultra Light balls to my Nauticam Housing I need a 12mm wrench. In keeping with the spirit of packing light I found this and got one off eBay for about $15. 1.6oz (30 grams for you metric folks) and just plain cool :swimmingfish:

I use a simple fishing vest with about 5kg of lenses and 1st stages in for checkin in case of carryon weighing after that it goes in carry on bag. A simple and useful addition to protect lenses are those 3mm neoprene drinks can cool jackets, since the vest pockets have no padding this is a concern.
