I'd gladly take just the stuff that's in a pile on the floor.

I'm curious about what happens to the gear after the Olympics. Do these wind up on Canon's shopping site as refurbs? Maybe they get sold as collector's items with an Olympics logo? I think it's safe to assume the photographers trusted with this gear are all pros who will not abuse it.

I read something when they had the last winter Olympics that both Nikon and Canon had a trailer of loaner gear on site at their repair on site repair center so that the pros could bring something in, getting a loan er and still be able to work their assignments.
