And this is where a Fuji GW670lll comes in wonderfully handy.

Not the first venue  to ban interchangeable lenses. Coachella Music Festival is another.

True: big enough to hold enough to blow enough away.

Long lenses and drinks (water!) aren't forbidden for safety reasons, IMHO. My shoulder bag was very carefully inspected at a baseball game in Phoenix last month.  Not for safety.  For foodstuffs that would compete with the concessions.


Peter, those venues are afraid your photos will compete with whatever photos/programs they're selling. As to guns in AZ, property owners can post "no firearms" signs at their business if they so choose.
