The Project H.O.M.E. event last night was great. Scott, Howard, Karl, Frank and myself represented Philly Future at the event. We also saw some more local writers there: Aaron from Philly IMC and Dan from Young Philly Politics. We all chatted with them throughout the night.
I took a few photos, but stayed with the gang for most of the night, it's always nice to speak to all of them fact to face instead of strictly online via email threads. I did use the 80-200 to get shots of the speakers. I put up a flickr set of nine shots with the one above being my favorite. Zoomed all the way at 200mm [~300mm in 35mm rates] and with the SB-600 zoomed in at 85mm, I shot from the second floor balcony thingie to the left of the stage and got some decent shots. I'm still not 100% comfortable with this lens as I am with my 18-70 f/3.5-4.5G and 50mm f/1.8D, but with time, I'm sure I'll learn to work this lens just as well. I already absolutely love it!
