How many of them do you think were purchased JUST for this one event and will wind up on the market after this?

I'm looking for a 600vr and wondering if I should just go ahead and place the order for a new one or if I should see if an olymic lens ends up in the For Sale section a month from now.

Thanks,
Gary

I bet finding one of those super telephoto lenses will be much easier in a few weeks. When the Olympics are over Nikon will be able to again focus on replenishing their stock.

both Nikon and Canon loan out huge amounts of gear to professional photographers at the Olympics just check out the picture of the room full of Nikon gear here:

I would suspect that much of this equipment eventually comes to the market ae either "demo" gear or "refurbished" gear.


WOW!

reading that article, they only loan out gear only if your camera gear is being repaired....unless I'm wrong?

From what I saw at the Olympics in Hong Kong you had better be shopping for a Canon lens :biggrin:

Nikon ruled the grandstands, but on the field it was all grey.

Those guy's aren't shooting any events, they're just waiting in line to get the autofocus fixed on their 1DmkIII bodies :biggrin:
