Folks, Bringing my son over for his first game. He has only seen high school so I think he's goona freak! But I had seen where you cannot bring a camera in that the lenses is longer than 6". Well my lense on my Canon EOS digital rebel is 4" retracted and 6 3/4 extended. since I will be riding the MARTA in I am afraid to bring if it doesnt pass the 6" rule as I will have no where to put the camera if they dont allow it. I sent 3 people at the Dome emails to clarify today. I told them the lenses is removable, but it was less then 6". I guess my long drawn out question is, does the 6" apply to retracted or extended? I just wanted to see if any of the regulars have encoutered how this falls? My last couple trips over I didnt even bring a camera. SO not sure if its worth the risk, but being his 13th Bday I wanted to capture the moments.

Any insight would be appreaciated.

We are coming from Decatur Al and are EXTREMELY EXCITED about watching the Falcons!!

I've had my Sony H50 in there plenty of times, my lens is around 5 inches extended : 31 - 465 mm Focal Length : 5.2 - 78 mm I have never had a problem, and I thought the limit was 12 inches on the lens ?
