I know, I know. It's about the photographer, not the gear. But if you can look at all the gear Getty is sending photographers to the Olympics with and not salivate, well, you're stronger than me.
Working for Getty has its perks, not the least of which include access to the latest and greatest camera gear. Michael Heiman, Managing Editor at Getty's New York Office, recently posted a few pictures of the company's collection of gear for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
As for camera bodies, I see the Canon 1D X, the 1D X Mark II, and the 5DS R. The lenses are much more fun to try to identify, particularly since Getty has included every focal length Canon offers (besides fisheye lenses). So far, I've been able to pick out the following:
- EF 11-24mm f/4L USM
- EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM
- EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
- EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens with Internal 1.4x Extender
- EF 200mm f/2L IS USM
- EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM
- EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM
- EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM
- EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM
- EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM
Feel free to jump in with whatever you spot. I'll just be over here picking my jaw up off the floor.
