Wait a second. The bear tried to eat a D4. Doesn't that mean it prefers Nikon ;D? He probably got lured in by the aroma of all that delicious dynamic range ;D

I think the bear was trying to destroy the D4, which means it's still on our side here! ;D

The bear left the photographer and went for the camera. He was pissed off at the the white balance setting or something!

From the comments....

"The D4 only survived because it locked up and played dead."

Humor in the face of adversity, love it.

All that gear (D4, 600VR, Wimberly) was rented from lensrentals.com  Roger has already sent out replacements to the guy to keep shooting with.  Story is on lensrentals's website.

Great story, even made dpreview's front page.

Ah come on, the bear just wanted to do a better pose for the photog... when the photog left the bear decided to take it upon itself to do a self portrait... nothing more nothing less  ;D ;D ;D

Did canon pay this bear

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1114874

This is the same bear I saw last time, he was holding 5D III & 24-70 mrk III taking landscape pics. I guess he doesn't want to be interupted by Nikon people.  ;D

Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

Nikon knows how to leak news and generate some page hits.  ;)
