The few shots I saw all have more black lenses than white. If you had a chance to see the chase car in the last game, the marathone, black lenses out number white lenses at least 2 to 1. That one is very clear since camera shot stayed on the truck for quite a few seconds. Anyway that panoramic tells the full story. There is no such thing as Canon AF smokes Nikon.

Exactly the few shots you saw haha

If you watched a decent amount you would of seen that overall it was fairly even and that overall canon probably had a few more but that is subjective as I didn't count them!

And anyways how ridiculous is it to be using how many of each brand is in the press pit at the olympics as a barometer of autofocus performance...

I think that the point he was trying to make was that if the AF were no good, there would have been very few Nikons there -- which is valid, IMO. However I doubt that very many of those that were there were D800 which is what this thread seems to be about.
