Why Don Morley switched from Olympus to Canon
5

To lighten up the recent torrent of gloom&doom posts, here is something completely different, a funny old story,

For starters, who is Don Morley? The godfather of sports photography, a legendary British sports photographer and photoreporter from '60s, '70s ...

Sometime early in '70s, he switched from Nikon to Olympus (you can read the story in the Olympus ad below).

But then disaster struck. Don Morley: "At the 1976 Olympics I had all my Olympus gear stolen and had to go cap in hand to Canon (who were the official camera sponsors of the games) to borrow a replacement. I have used Canon ever since."

Source of the story, and a lot of other interesting photo stuff: http://macfilos.com/photo/2014/2/17/don-morley-photo-professional-and-leica-fan
