    A reflex lens, good idea. The Sony lens is *just* at the edge of the rule. Tamron also had a 350mm f/5.6 SP that is short enough.

    I assume the intent of the rule is to control photographic access, i.e. no "unauthorized" photogs bringing super-telephoto lenses and "stealing" shots that could otherwise only be made from the sidelines. Or something like that.

    Someone has paid for media rights on the venue and wants to protect that. It sucks but since it's private property, they do have the right to control these things.
