I've seen rumors saying their are two things:
1. the 10th generation of the EOS System. (How they count generations is beyond me, there are lots of theories)
2. The metger of the 7D and the 5D line into one body.
I expect we might see some more X's in the other categories if this is true. 10X, 100X, 1000X ??
I think the first is referring to the 1D X. That was language Canon used in its announcement.
They each capture the essence of childhood, that sweet innocence that burns off somewhere in the teens.
Well, that innocence wore off two seconds later when she made the face she always makes while being photographed. The only keepers with her are the candids ;-)
I used the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 on my 7D and loved it. You might also consider the EF-S 15-85. It's supposed to be L sharp, but not as fast as the 17-55. You wouldn't need f/2.8 for landscapes though.
I just buy the lens. Instead of renting for a few days, if there's a lens I am interested in trying, but not certain is the right lens for me, I watch my local Craiglist boards (quite active here), and buy the lens used.
I do the same in the Washington DC area and haven't been disappointed. My most recent purchase was an excellent 400mm f/2.8 L II for $3400. Given what the IS Mk I and now Mk II's go for it was a steal.
I've made an animated gif comparing the resolution charts of this new lens at 70mm to the 70-200mm f/2.8 L II at 70mm, since that is something a lot of us can relate to. It seems like it will deliver some stunning results (better at 70mm anyway).
I'm very disappointed that they choose to release unrealistic exposures as examples. Who shoots 1/8000s at ISO800? No one. I get they want to show some higher ISO images, but how about some realistic low-light shots?
