Staples Center has a strict policy:Vancouver Canucks is very restrictive on lens length. LA Kings is probably worse. Photographing a band like U2 from close up is on my bucket list.
Guest Services A-Z | STAPLES CenterNon-professional, non-flash still photography is permitted at most events (disposable, digital, or 35mm cameras with no interchangeable or telephoto lens). However, for some events, at the request of the artist/performer/team, cameras of any type may be prohibited. Video recording devices, audio recording devices, Go Pro cameras, monopods, tripods, selfie sticks, and cameras with telephoto or interchangeable lenses (professional photography equipment) are not permitted inside STAPLES Center at any time. Video recording on any device and/or flash photography is prohibited at all times. This policy will be strictly enforced and management reserves the right to deny any electronic device at their discretion.
Interesting, not sure why the tc either. The M1 Mk2 has its limits, if I recall 10fps max if you want C-AF to capture every frame. Just did this, had pro-capture low set to 10fps and it never missed a shot, or it missed all of them. I think out of 10 sequences it missed 2 and that was my fault. I pushed the limits by using all 121 points to see if the camera would stay on the aircraft, more than once it jumped to a high contrast ground object like runway signs or hangers. Against the sky it worked okay but would lock on clouds. Point here is use smaller group of targets...9 or 25.
Richard---with my d500 I use a 70-200 f/4, and a 300 f/4pf. Both these lens are compact and light---no problem handling. Like I said I love my Oly gear but for tracking and holding focus the Oly just can't cut it.Ken I've handled (fondled! LOL) a D500 with a Nikon tele and it was so sweet.
What tele (zoom?) do you use on birds?
It certainly had me pondering that combo for birds only and EM5 for all other. Not sure how long that would last.
But size and weight is important as I realise I'm getting old and older LOL

Thanks Ken & Reza
I've a feeling it was a 70-200 I tried.
On the D500 how does that equate in EM1 terms? What equivalent length please?
My Panasonic 100-400mm really is as much as I'd desire, but even at 300 still satisfies a lot of my needs.
The resolution of the D500 photos I've seen are so good and that autofocus!
