The closest looks like perhaps a 16-35mm and the second photographer looks to have a 24mm mark I or II.

#27-28 are intense. I guess the looter wasn't armed.

In my neck of the woods this was always true, I would be shooting my Canon's and every PJ that came to my theatre was Shooting Nikon,.. until about 2005 when they all switched to Canon 1 Series as Noink still had nothing remotely capable of comparing.
Now of course the playing field has evened out, but the legacy remains, many switched and stayed with Canon. some were itching to go back and did. Most didn't care and shot whatever the paper was providing happily.

First guy on the left.. 24-105..
second guy and third guy.. 24L and 35L
fourth is 16-35L or 17-40
and the closest guy to the policeman is an 50mm I guess...

BUT...

Indeed sad photos, but very good captures. My best friend was in Haiti last week as part of South Africa's relief team, He took some horrific pictures with my point and shoot. Nothing close in quality though

I wouldn't jump on him, you don't know what he's thinking... ;)

The Big Picture has a lot of series like this. The emotional impact is always the biggest thing, but that doesn't stop me from wondering what gear was used.

The guy in the front? It looks like a 10 gauge...

Very powerful images... What they're shooting with definitely isn't the point to these. #25, #27 and #28 are three of the most powerful photos just because they tell a story as you go through them. Very sad...

WTF? Other than "Was that looter armed?" I'm not seeing any other questions that need to be asked unless you want to waste time with a bunch of philosophical "Why did God/Allah/whoever let this happen" type BS. And asking about the gear being used to capture these images under these type of conditions seems perfectly valid to me.

Looks more like a 20 ga. shotgun to me. I don't think it's a rifle as the description says.
