It's a good one  :D I hope it does include free upgrades to a newer camera too  ;)

I just saw somewhere that the 70d is now expected in early june, so we can be hopeful.

This is the announcement for the 70D and a new Powershot with APS-C sensor and Digic 6 (bigger as the S100 but not the G2X.

What I'd like to see (but probably won't) announced...

A 70D with greater pixel density than the 7D, and lower noise.
A pancake lens similar in size to the 40/2.8, perhaps in APS-C, around 20-22 mm. (thinking for the SL1 here)
A pocketable large-sensor camera, similar to the S-100, but with a faster lens and APS-C sensor. Needs to be able to contract the lens so that it'll fit in a shirt pocket.

Hey, a guy can dream, right?

Let's if other regions have announcements.   If major camera announcement, I expect it would be announced in multiple locations

Yeah, I've seen that pop up on several other sites due to the cashback program released in Germany leading up to the end of July. That said, I've also seen rumors of a mid-june announcement, and I don't see it unfeasible that canon might announce the 70d earlier (why not the 31st?) and have it be available at the end of July.

I guess we're all just wishing in the end...

Doesn't matter if they have it or not, Canon must announce a small 30~34mm EF-S prime (for the 100D) and the 60D/7D replacement ... 'cause the natives are getting restless.

Yes, "must" (you forgot the italics). I may only be one, but (a) whether or not I buy the 100D (or any other APS-C camera) depends largely on whether or not Canon comes up with a small EF-S prime to match; and (b) the 60D/7D replacement is now so long overdue and horrendously under-spec'ed compared to the Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus offerings that neither they (the 60D and the 7D) nor the 6D is a viable option for me (singular, one).

I will say, I don't quite understand why Canon still hasn't made any competition for the likes of sigma's 30 DC HSM...

I would also like to see some compact wide/standard EF-S primes! What are the chances? I've got some coins here somewhere... I'll just go and flip 'em! (the same coins that form the basis of my lens fund... i.e, minimal to non existent  :'( )

So on the 31th they must announce a small 30~34mm EF-S prime (for the 100D) and the 60D upgrade (70D) or a 7D upgrade (7D2) or what happens?

sorry forgot the bold, italics and underline that time  ::)

can't see the 70D being very exciting but when the 7D2 finally appears I think it may just be something very special, not on the 31st though

I think it will be Canon announcing it's first 3D printer.... and it probably comes with the file to print a 70D body and a 1200F5.6 lens....

Canondoes not make announcements for new cameras, or much of anything else on Fridays.  This was a unbelievable rumor from the beginning.

Get Smart.... Canon does not "leak" information. They use the latest technology to Control information. Any discussions of new bodies are subject to the highest security and only conducted under the Cone-Of-Silence, out of fear of if the competition found out, Kaos would happen.

You can't take these things seriously.... If you believed every rumour and all the speculation you would go crazy. I figure that what happens, happens. And when something does get announced you have months to wait before it is available, so why get worked up into a frenzy.
