Go away....look at something else...
An inside look at the crazy amount of gear Getty photographers at Sochi have to chose from

In the picture above, taken on January 30th 2014, you see more than 315,000 Euro worth of Canon camera gear or 425,659.59 US dollars! That?s the value of a house and more than a Lamborghini Aventador!!!

Here?s a list of everything pictured above:

20 Canon 1Dx cameras
3 Canon 5DmkIII cameras
1 Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro lens
2 Canon 14mm fisheye lenses
2 Canon 15mm fisheye lenses
5 Canon 16-35mm zoom lenses
7 Canon 200-400mm zoom lenses
2 Canon 200mm f/1.8 lenses
2 Canon 300mm f/2.8 lenses
2 Canon 300mm f/4 lenses

I thought photographers brought their own equipment. Is it always provided by a manufacturer?

When you're shooting for a large publication or stock agency, they often supply gear for official photographers or have a pool of gear that their photographers can use.
