More on "House"

I'm really looking forward to the screening of the last episode of "House" today - I'm getting a little sick of the continual posts and articles about this episode being shot with DSLRs!

Even USA Today has gotten in on the act, though they manage to make it sound like the director shot the episode with his Flip camera: 'House' director producing episode with digital camera, memory card, though it does include some interesting details:
...he convinced the producers to do an entire episode, using 3 5Ds and a host of Canon lenses: 14mm, 20mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, the 70-200mm and 24-70mm zooms. (They didn't have to go out and buy the lenses--Canon loaned them to the producers). For memory cards, he opted for eight 8 GB compact flash cards to shoot the scenes. He opted for smaller capacity cards, because the scenes were short

[NOTE: the 85mm L lens is on sale; grab one and a 5D and start shooting your own episode of House!!!]
