    I took note of many of the photographers at yesterday's PGA Championship.
    Surprisingly, the Nikon shooters seemed to equal the number of Canon
    shooters.

    Although the number of Canon cameras probably outnumbered the number of
    Nikons as I noticed one photographer had 5 Canon cameras around his neck!!
    All film too. Seemed like a camera body for each lens-- 17-35mm, 28-70mm,
    80-200mm, and 2 of those big white tele-primes. A couple were EOS 1, but
    others were lower-end models such as EOS 3. Each body and lens looked as
    rustic as the fellow carrying them all. Brassing, dents, duck-tape, etc!

    Nikon shooters seemed to be mostly using D2H and F5s.

    Maybe the 5 camera photog needs a caddy as well.

    As to expected F5 = current pro film body D2H = fastest available
    digital body (but not highest res, thats still the D1x)

    thanks for the interesting info though!!

    The 8.2MP 8.5fps Canon 1D MKII says 'hi."
