    Exclamation Nikon at the Olympics

    I wonder if they would notice if one 500mm f/4 just happened to go missing...?

    Your first concern would be getting into the Olympic facility because of "Chinese Virus" running rampant in Japan!

    Towards the end of the article it says, "DPReview reports that although Nikon Z series mirrorless cameras and lenses aren’t found in these areas photographed by Kalut — something people immediately picked up on — the company does have Z6 II, Z7 II, and Z-mount lenses at the Olympics for photographers to use as well."

    I guess they just aren't as photogenic

    Even if there weren't mirrorless, I'd never turn down a D6 for sports photography.

    See this at Nikonrumors: https://nikonrumors.com/2021/07/30/m...olympics.aspx/

    I wonder how special you need to be to get this gig... Hopefully, it really is the Z9.

    There is also some insight into the Nikon support room at the olympics in another article on the site.

    I drive an old car so that I can buy more photo gear.
