I'm just back from a trip to Japan searching out elusive JASDF aircraft (they don't generally come to the UK).
At one airfield I saw a local with an A99 plus the 70-400G Mk2, very nice.
At another I came across a local using Minolta MD kit. Pair of X500s plus a 70-210 f4 and a 100-300. Nice kit and some great photos (he had some samples with him). I used to have the same lenses.
Only a few Canons about but a lot of Nikons which is the opposite of the UK which is predominantly Canon.
Sorry no pic.
Some Sony stuff and now some Nikon stuff (shock horror). Sony cannot supply what I want so rightly or wrongly I'm branching out to someone who does.
