Well, I just looked up the tour details http://www.lowerantelope.com/aboutTheTour.php and it says

"Photographer's pass is 2 hours in duration. One photo pass for each individual with the required equipment. You can purchase the pass at the booth. The REQUIRED equipment are a SLR camera, medium or large format WITH a tripod. No guide is provided for the photographer, but a Canyon Monitor will check on you periodically for questions or assistant.

Things to bring:

• SLR camera (medium or large format) required
• Extra film or memory cards.
• Batteries
• Tripod required
• Plastic bag (for windy days to protect camera or lens)"

Seems a bit stupid, but an m4/3 is not an SLR (bolding is theirs, not mine).

Ah, well. The requirement for medium or large format means that no Nikon or Canon cameras are allowed either. Just Hasselblads, Mamiya, Phase One, Pentax 645 and a few others. Oh, and a Graflex or Gowland 4x5" film SLR of course. That doesn't leave many customers.

Some people have no clue.

Sounds like an elitist circle jerk.
