And yeah, there's a lot of Canon shooters in MA, especially the tourists. However I was at the botanic garden the other day and saw husband and wife with matching D300's with 18-200 VRs, and then there was a guy who had either a D3 or D3X, but looked like he only had a crappy 24-120 VR on it... Overall I saw more Nikon that day than I had in a long time.
EDIT: Have fun with your trip! If you do go to the Cape, I strongly suggest making it to either Chatham or Provincetown. Both very eclectic places, especially P-town. Plus they have some of the more "classic" Cape beaches (Nauset/Lighthouse beach in Chatham, and the entire seashore in P-town with dunes and the sight of Marconi's experiment).
No, it was $7.50 for the Harpoon and for their in-house stuff. I've been to some pricey tourist type bars, but that's robbery. It's not like Harpoon is some rarity. That's the kind of price I would pay for Dogfish Worldwide Stout or something similar (I wish, it actually costs more than that in a liquor store, LOL).
Thanks for the recommendations for the Cape. We had no ideas where to go, but we'll check out Provincetown for sure since we were considering driving the length of it anyway, LOL.

Then, I took a trip inside the media center to the room where all the pro photographers upload their pics and my lord...the money in there. 500mm f/4L's everywhere and enough 70-200 2.8 MKII's for everyone of us who frequents this thread and then some.
...and that was just the Canon stuff.
Generally I see more Canon DSLRs at any given place, but the ratio here is quite Canon-heavy. I was at the Cincy Zoo recently and saw equal parts Canon and Nikon.
And speaking of race tracks, when Keeneland (horse racing track) is up and running, it's a gear bonanza. Cameras strategically placed all around the track with wireless setups, right on the ground in many cases.Edited by GoneTomorrow - 6/20/11 at 8:16pm
