    First eat at McDonald's, the official restaurant, then take some photos
    that match the quality of the food, with the official camera.

    Not "anyone". Just the general public. In tonight's coverage of the
    swimming events, the camera panned to the press photographers'
    section...a mass of long lenses on dslr or slrs.

    That is nonsense. There are hundreds of Pro cameras with long lenses in
    many of the crowd and background shots - all in obvious photographer's
    areas. The Chinese wanted to host the Olympics for the publicity. If they
    banned all Pro photographers they'd be shooting themselves in the foot, and
    although the Chinese may be many things, they are not stupid.

    They are under a declared major terrorist threat. A long lens can conceal
    all manner of explosives or weapons. They don't want them in the crowds. It
    is the foremost reason.

    Wake up to yourself and stop with the ill-considered, thoughtless
    xenophobic crap.

  4. Were they all off-white, like in the Canon ads?

    No, and I did make special note of that. About half-and-half white
    and black.

  6. So they were shooting color with b/w lenses. :)

    How do I Tivo what has already been shown?
    Help who? Why? Who really cares?
    My figure was a guess based on viewing a few seconds of the scene.
    All I really noticed was a seemingly fairly even balance between white
    and black lenses. It could have 55/45 for all I know, though.

    The issue is rather pointless, though. These were professional
    photographers who purchased the lenses that they thought would be best
    for them. Any petty little brand war in this group is immaterial.

  8. Please note that I didn't intend to be a party to one when I inserted a
    little humor about lens color. I know that Canon ads don't equal real
    life on the sidelines.
