    Ah ok. That explains a lot. There is relatively no restriction for internal press and CP, some restrictions for freelance and lots of restrictions for fans. And I think you can guess as to why? :)

    Staples Center has a strict policy:
    Guest Services A-Z | STAPLES Center

    They used to allow lenses under a couple inches, and had recently changed to this policy when I went to a Lakers game... I mounted the 9mm BCL on my E-M1 and put it and the 40-150R in my wife's purse. Security saw it but allowed it anyways.

    Thanks for the write up and for taking us along. I appreciate this side-by-side comparison and you're analysis of the performance of the kits throughout the games. Thanks!

    We will have a first for us when we photograph our minor league hockey team on 2/1/19. There are no restrictions on cameras and lenses and we will be allowed on the ice at game end to shoot the players who will stay around for autographs and photos. I have only been to one NHL game at the Dallas American Center but we were in one of the boxes with drinks, food, and other amenities. I went to another local minor league event years ago and was prepared for the cold inside the arena. From my first experience to the Dallas event, the changes for safety has been very great with much more netting. There was a horrible accident years ago when a 2-year-old was hit with a puck while being with his dad who was drinking and not paying attention with the kid behind the goal. Immediate changes were made to have netting instead of the low glass. Looking forward to the event although I am not that up on hockey.
