I have a moral question for you. This is an imaginary situation, but I think it is insightful to decide what one would do. The situation: You are in the Middle East, and there is a huge flood in progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised and structures destroyed. Let's say that you're a photographer and getting still photos for a news service, traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes. You come across Osama Bin Laden who has been swept away by the floodwaters. He is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go under. You can either put down your camera and save him, or take a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of him as he loses his grip on the limb. So, here's the question and think carefully before you answer the question below: Which lens would you use? [}:D]

Close up so we get a good pic. of his final breath.....Hope this wasn't a trick question? Can't recall many floods or trees there..

I'd hopefully have a camcorder, to videotape my buddy beating him with a stick before kicking over the edge.

How about a compromise? Put down the camera. Save his sorry ass. While he's still recovering, tie him up. Hang him upside down and take pics of the "Prize winning bASS" This way you can save him, collect 5 million for his capture and make millions selling your pic to the media. Win-Win situation.
