It was sights like this that drew me towards Canon when trying to decide which route to take in the digital age. My film days were Contax/Zeiss & I wish I had kept some of my lenses. Pity Contax/Yashica could not manage to keep up with the emerging technology.

That's because all the Nikon shooters were already en route to Sochi.

it is because at the moment, canon body is better than Nikon, 1DX is better and D4.

In the first photo, looks like 75% also wearing the same black beanie--what appears to be CPS logo?

Yes, you get one when you send in a friend's gear as your own for servicing.

I don't think so (I certainly can't see it). Not only is the 1200 huge but it's the only lens with a carrying handle on the top so it's easy to spot.

That's because only accredited photographers were allowed in the camera pits...

That would certainly explain all the images that were blurred due to slow focusing or mirror vibration...

Canon has blown Nikon out of the water this time around....things will likely change at a later date....who knows

But for sports and wildlife I would never recommend Nikon to anyone if they are willing to spend the money for 1DX/5D3/1D4 and a mark II super telephoto.

For landscapes I'd be hawking D800(e)s left and right to people
