No USB in a lens. Perhaps USM? It will likely have USM.
Hey, this *is* Canon rumors, isn't it? And a lens w/ usb is just as valid as any other rumor around here :-)
It was a question, not a rumor.As to continuous autofocus while doing video, I really doubt it. No one has figured this out yet, but there might be some very slow autofocus during video like the D7000.
While as a Canon user I am always happy to bash Nikon, I have to admit that the D7000 at least has a working contrast af at all. The "af" built into current eos bodies like my 60D is just a bad joke and imho simply made to put "af on video" in the tech specs, but no one in his right mind would dare to actually use it except on a still object. "Quick af" of course works, but is very loud and you've got a short blackout because the mirror flips.
Apparently, all the professionals who do use it, making commercials, TV shows, and movies are not in their right mind? Its just that they know how to use manual focus, because professional film makers have always used manual focus.
Those of us who want a camcorder, have slim pickings.
