This is what $425,659.59 in camera gear looks like

These are all the cameras and lenses that the Getty Images photographers have brought to the Sochi Winter Games. Exactly $425,659.59, according to Robert Cianflone in Petapixel—"that's the value of a house and more than a Lamborghini Aventador!"

Here's the list:

  • 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
  • 2 Canon 35mm f/1.4 lenses
  • 2 Canon 50mm f/1.2 lenses
  • 2 Canon 400mm f/2.8 lenses
  • 8 Canon 500mm f/4 lenses
  • 10 Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses
  • 7 Canon 8-15mm fisheye lenses
  • 5 Canon 800mm f/5.6 lenses
  • 2 Canon 85mm f/1.2 lenses
  • And a set of Tilt Shift lenses

It's pretty impressive. Especially knowing that Getty Images is just one of the photography agencies covering the games.
