World Cup lenses

I always noticed the what photographers are using at basketball games ect.

I noticed that in the world cup many of them had a similiar lens.  Looked like a bunch of zebras

Anybody got an idea on what set up they're using? Camera and lens.  Thanks.

What type of zoom do those have?

Well all I can say  is BIG AND LONG with zebra stripes of course.

Canon has some long lenses that are that color of white.

What facinates me.. - > Apparantly no mono or tripods.  With long lenses like that .. you gotta be shooting super fast OR be getting a compact flash card full of fuzzy photo's.

Surely they have to shoot fast because remember...the players are running 

LOL

I noticed the no monopod thing, alhtough im sure some use it. after a little while im sure it gets tiring without it.   i guess i shouldnt complain about my little FC e8 lens!
