    The current still version, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III, is available for $1800 new. The previous (and perfectly fine) II version runs about $1000 to $1300 used.

    The financial boondoggle that is the Olympics has long been criticized as wasteful. Frankly, I think it's good that people are finally paying attention. I'd like it to be more of a sporting...

    Thanks for that. As I mentioned, I haven't done much live streaming, and when I do, I don't run the board. So the preview screens I've glanced at were all multiview, so I conflated the terms. D'oh....
