Oh, and "leading" and being "first" are 2 different things
Yes... the one means you're finished

I've been watching the IPhone and the IPad frenzy lately and I finally got up my courage to ask a few questions about the IPad with an eye toward downloading photos for viewing (daily shoots) and for connection to a live camera to use it as a monitor for my cameras out in the field. When I say "the field", I mean forrest or sea coast or other minimally habitated area. Read few or non-existant cell towers. Yes I know everyones needs are different. However here is what I asked the Ipad user at Starbucks:
I shot the "same" 500-1000 shots every other week all summer at my team's bike race using only L glass (mostly 70-200 L IS, some with 24-105 L), so they are shots that I am VERY familiar with.
P.S. Tried a 7D and it had most of the above but I found the images were softer than on my (wife's) 40D so I decided to wait
Canon better do this, because Nikon definitely will. The only problem I see is not being compatible with third party flashes (unless they release their own receivers). Id hate to have to use two systems for my PCB lights + speedlights....
I'm your typical "Windows XP" kinda guy. I had to use Win Vista once and was annoyed by it. Win 7 may be better but at the moment I just do not care.
sorry. but is you photography so perfect that all current canon DSLR cameras are not good enough for you?
and if the answer is yes... i am (i think most here) curious to hear how nikon will increase your phantastic photos even further??
I would never buy the latest kit, the problem is that it takes an age for Adobe & other software providers to issue their RAW / ACR updates, meaning that you have a camera which for professional use is just about useless.
Personally, I like a little lead time knowing what a coming product is. That way I can either drool and dream or decide "hey, nothing there worth waiting for, I'll get a current model."
You say that you would like a 1D but there's no stock - doesn't that just illustrate the points I made above, that Canon are still having production problems?
I sometimes read posts like this & slowly shake my head. Have you not heard of the Japanese earthquake which devastated parts of Japan? Canons facilities were damaged in this and as a corporate policy it is their decision not to announce a new body until they have production facilities to actually deliver it.
It does beg the question as to the state of Canons current production facilities, especially as the EOS body plant is miles away from the earthquake zone
Announcement of a camera which you cannot get your hands on, or a company which says we're not going to announce the camera until we can ship it?I want neither
