My heart goes out to you with your DVIII nosing over, I know those props are not going to be cheap!
Getting close at these events is a major plus. As my low end kit lenses is all I have I tend to put the 40-150mm on my E-450

Props are not cheap. When I fly off tarmac or concrete (most of the time) I tend to put on a cheaper prop, that way should the worst happen its only 12.00 down the toilet.

Some of the bigger carbon fibre props will set you back in the region of 120.00

Imagine throwing a lens onto the concrete every time you took some pictures!!
Today I am ready for yesterday...
