Can't find any info online about lens size restrictions.  Has anyone been there and shot with a 70-200 or bigger lens?  I'm hoping I can bring my M.Zuiko 40-150 and assuming I can since it's still relatively small but want to be sure.  I've emailed the ring but they haven't responded.

And, if anyone has been there, I'd be interested in your experience and what lenses you found most useful (I'm planning on the 12-40 and 40-150 with the Oly 2x crop factor). 
Cheers,
Doug

It seems to be ok looking at the comments. I am sure it won't be Tijuana though. The last time I saw a fight, El Cordobes was fighting and afterwards, we all got drunk at the La Sierra w/ the master himself (1960's). Interesting, I ran into him in southern France in the 90's and he was still fighting (grabbed a poster for old times sake). Nasty sport but it does have a tradition.

Thanks, Mike.  That's really cool!  The ring eventually responded to my email and they said any gear is acceptable as long as it doesn't disturb other patrons.  I think I will be fine with my Oly and 40-150 f/2.8.  

Yes, a nasty sport from an American perspective.  I'm looking forward to experiencing it amongst Spaniards.  Man this place is hot!  
Cheers,
Doug
