    It appears Reuters photographers have a blog in which they talk about the nitty-gritty behind their work. It came to my attention via a post about their preparations for the royal wedding: Final preparations for the big day | Photographers

    Check out the photo of their kit (about 5 photos down): 110 pounds of equipment each!

    The next few blog entries are also about getting shots in various situations throughout the festivities. Kinda interesting...

    I can't help but wonder if there'll ever be an M43 pro kit capable enough for an event like this but at half the weight?

    When I was in London a couple of months ago I saw a photographer hanging around outside the station in the financial 'the gherkin' area with multiple cameras and one of those white enormo-lenses hanging off him. It was about 5.30pm. I did wonder who he was waiting for.
