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.
Only a Tamron 16-300 left sadly. Sony cannot supply what I want so rightly or wrongly I've branched out to someone who does and I'm very happy.
