It's not a DSLR.

Cy Cheze: Would an ordinary spectator be allowed to bring a G5 with the 140mm lens into an Olympic venue?
Might it be possible to get reliable focus by simply setting it manually for the approximate distance of the competitors?
Realistically, only a few people have close-up access where narrow DOF (or tricky focus) would make quick AF crucial.

I saw several DSLRs in the audience last night. Lenses longer than 30cm are not allowed.

vtinitus: Is there really a lumix 7mm-300mm lens? I couldn't find it anywhere...

It's F4-F5.6 in exposure terms, 8-11 only in DOF. Sounds like an advantage to me.
