    jesus thats a lot of stuff!

    being a photographer I would suggest getting a better zoom lens, the 55-200 seems like it could be pretty weak for the low lit corridors of CES. The 30mm however should be fantastic

    That's what the prime lens is for. Zoom's just for keynotes.

    And on Groundhogs’ day Phil announces that he's going in for Rotator Cuff surgery after carrying that bag up and down the Strip for 4 days!
