comment Are there any hardshell covers / protectors for lenses?
Just a thought, in the past, I've seen underwater cases for SLRs that were rigid. If you could find one for your camera/lens combo, it would give you the rigid protection you are looking for, and make the unit "beer-proof to 10 meters" as well

comment How can I best record and improve my pre-shoot planning process?
@mattdm I struggled with the survey of what people do, versus asking for a product recommendation. I took a shot at rewriting the question a bit, still not sure its much better.

comment What would cause an AF confirmation light to go on and off as I approach correct focus?
What I think Mattdm is refering to is the multiple focus zones on the 450D. I think it has 7 in a cross pattern. THere is a button on the top right of the back that lets you select the desired focus point. For your experiment, I'd select the central point.

comment Can I take pictures at Little League game without official permission or payment?
While I agree that they probably don't have a legal right to keep her from taking/selling pictures, there is more to this than where are the pictures taken. I used to be heavily involved with Recreational Youth Soccer, and all of our games were played on School or City fields. However the permits issued to us gave us limited control, and often allowed the organization to place restrictions such as no smoking or no dogs at a city park during games a practices. Generally these were safety/health related issues, but the permit did allow me to ban parents who were disruptive.
