And I'm okay with Canon if they don't refresh it -- just keep selling it. They have bigger things to work on, like that 14-24 or 12-24L I'll be buying

The rumors need to start materialising as lenses. The newer cameras (before we even get to 45 or 85MP as been rumored here) such as the 6d show up the problems of the EF-17-40mm f4L, EF24-105mm f4L both of which have pronouced chromatic abberations at 17mm and 24mm respectively. As sensors improve the faults of lenses masked at 8, 10, 12 or 18MP now show up and this undermines the system ability to produce great results. Sigma have shown improvement are possible (so has Zeiss at a price) and still remain competitive to Canon pricing.
A 24-105 II L really would be nice, especially mated with a 100-400 II L combo. Very versatile!
They really need:
4k that is real 4k and not like 1080P
forget all the stupid DNR where they turn even ISO 100 to wax unless it's extreme contrast edges, we want natural 'grain' and detail and we don't want fine surface detail to be turned to mush from plasticky fake looking DNR!
we need 10bits not bits recorded internally, 10bits 4:4:4, compressed, detailed, 4k recorded internally would be great (4:2:2 at worst). (and it should allow 1080p RAW like ML)
and how about just building the zebras and focus 100% box and focus peaking in? basic stuff!
This price reduction makes me now think (even more) that there'll be a 1DC2 unveiled at the NAB show.
mkabi, to my knowledge, those RED sensors have never been released. I remember seeing them talked about years ago, but I never heard anymore than that.
Back to the lens, it's probably going to be over $20k. Likely in the $30k's, at least, but we'll see in a week or less. Spec wise, I haven't heard exact numbers(more correctly, I've heard two or three different, but similar zoom ranges) and I don't want to say the exact numbers that I have heard, but it's supposed to be wider than 20mm and longer than 105mm. Aperture, I haven't heard either, but hopefully a constant T2.9. And regarding the picture, I was told this morning by someone that officially they have to say it might be fake, but it's not- unofficially...
But, until Canon releases an announcement it's all rumor. By this time next week, we should know for sure. NAB really gets cranking Monday.
