    Where do they get those wonderful toys?
  4. Maybe I should have called this "Nikon Wins Olympic Gold!"
  5. Haha, when I watch the Olympics with my family, i'm always saying nikon, canon, canon, nikon, as they show the photographers. Nikon's coming back,
  6. perpetually out of stock lenses explained
  7. it's nice to see the GRAND MIGRATION in FULL SWING
  8. That means more 300 VR, 400 VR, 500 VR, 600 VR lenses are being picked up, so when these newspapers, agencies, etc. upgrade, they'll flood the market with cheap VR telephotos! :wink:
  9. I was watching the other day as the cameraman panned the photographers gallery pretty close up. My 11 year old said "Daddy look!"

    I knew at that moment she had to be my child :biggrin:!

    There is "one" long hair dude with a Nikkor 600 F4 ED-IF AIS in the front row:biggrin: Takes one to know one. :smile:. The scary thing is the really long glass up in the rafters with the really long glass getting unique angles/perspective that everyone of those guys will miss.

    All those khaki vests and shorts look much better with black lenses.

    Incredible how much inroad the D3 has made into the sea of white in 8 months. It looks like around 60% black now. I've been seeing lots of D3's at gymnastics as well.
    Did anyone else see that woman photographer with a monopod holding 2 D3's with what looked like a 24-70 and 70-200 side by side.

    It must suck to shoot the Olympics, always penned off with a dozens of others getting the same shot as you.
