There is no such info on the official site, and there have been no emails sent out to ticket holders giving these revised rules so my 7D and 70-200 are still going to the mountain bikingGrin

Interesting statement in the AP article: "The move suggests Olympic organisers may have significantly underestimated the growing use of changeable-lens compact system cameras"

They didn't bargain for things like a zoom lens which you can easily stick into your coat pocket but will give you FF equiv of 600mm. Wink

I`d been watching items on Amazon that were flying of the shelves the week before the games started Smile

watching TV today and noticed there was someone at the rowing today with a lens of at least 500mm and they were just in the general public area Smile

There's a lot more room outside I suppose.
A good day again. Smile

I had no trouble getting my 100-400 L into the rowing venue. Not an eye was batted. It is (just) 30cm long open, but that is without the lens hood, so basically no problems. The Games site is clear 30cm max, so many modern zooms will fit.

It was fantastic being part of the wall of noise near the finish. Tickets were 95 each but to see Kath Grainger finally getting that gold medal was absolutely worth every penny.

I've posted this on the main gallery

Come on GB.

For that price I'd have expected to take the boat home with me.

For 95 you'd probably get the little ping-pong ball on the bows!
