    Hello friends!

    Today I will be attending a MN Twins baseball game at Target Field here in sunny (finally!) Minneapolis. Although the site says that cameras are welcome (as long as no tripod/monopod/commercial use), I wonder if they'll balk at my OMD + Panny 100-300mm lens. I intend on carrying the lens in my pocket, and holding the OMD + 14mm pancake walking in.

    Anyone have any experience/problems with this type of situation at a Major League baseball game/ pro sporting events?

    Thanks!
    Tom

    I can't imagine they would, after all the 100-300 is tiny! Most consumer Nikons and Canons kit lenses (that are everywhere these days) are almost as large as the 100-300 on an OMD. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    I brought my P100-300 to Fenway for Red Sox-Yankees - no issues at all. Enjoy the game and post some photos!

    Should not be a problem. Even the draconian rules for the 2012 Summer Olympics were an easy pass with m4/3 gear, including the 100-300mm lens. :thumbup:

    Put the lens in an available slot in a six-pack among brewskis. Tell it to act like a Bud.
