I don't think I've transfered pictures off a card while it's still in the camera but twice, maybe three times.

I'd rather have a good, fast, card reader that I can use for all my cards/cameras.  Why pay extra to integrate it into every camera, if the current USB2 connections are more than adequate for occasional use?

P.S.  Sorry, I meant to add: I've decided I'm going to buy this lens.  I'm waiting until April and if there is nothing definitive about an update, I'm going to buy the current version.

If a new version is released in conjunction with a 5DM3, I will probably buy the kit hoping to save a few bucks on both the camera and the lens.

It would be nice, but I doubt the 5D3 will have this as a kit lens; especially with IS it would just be too expensive of a lens, and would probably put the kit in the $3800-4000 range.  I think an updated 24-105/4L would be much more likely.

"Rumors of it's replacement have been greatly exaggerated" - Mark Twain

But seriously, there have been rumors for at least 3 years that it is being replaced/upgraded with IS, etc.  I honestly think they'll eventually release both a new version, and a version with IS.  When?  No one but Canon knows.

If you need the lens, I would get it now.  If the new version is worth upgrading to, you probably wont lose much (5% ?) when you sell yours since the new version will surely be significantly more expensive.

I especially like the second one (photoshopped in rain and all :) )

So you want to replace $10 worth of rechargeable batteries, with a $65 battery that has less capacity?

10mb/s isn't the fastest SD card. I have a 30mb/S SD card.

Watch your units.  10Mb/s is not equal to 10MB/sec.

30mb/s is approximately equal to 3MB/s which is class 3.

I would like to add the personal attacks ARE banned, and perpetrators will be dealt with accordingly.

There are several variants of the 75-300, but none of them focus very fast, and all are optically mediocre.  It's tough to tell without more details, but the T2i probably isn't your weak point.

Have you thought about getting a new lens?  The 70-200 f/4L USM would be better than the 75-300 in every way, if you can afford to lose 100mm on the long end.  It is also very reasonably priced.  Before you put a new body behind sub-par glass, I would suggest at least renting a better lens for a weekend.

it doesn't capture(snap) the movement as clearly as I would like.

Out of focus?  Motion blur?

What AF mode are you using?  What lens?

Compact flash is significantly faster than SD.

SD class 10 (the fastest you can get) = 10MB/s = CF x66 (probably the slowest you can get)

High end UDMA CF cards these days are up to x675 = 100MB/s.  Which is almost fast enough to shoot a 7D continuously at full speed (jpeg) without buffering.  If the 7D came with an SD slot, it would be unusable.

I normally use Chrome, but I just tested with Firefox 3.6.16 on Linux (Fedora 14) and I see no delays.

EF-S 50-135/2.8 IS ring-USM

If it's an equivalent build and optical quality to the 17-55/2.8, and a retail price of under $1800, it would sell like crazy.

I just realized I've been desensitized by recent "L" pricing.  $1400 would be much more appropriate pricing.
Looks like Sigma is first out of the gate

Hmmmm.  TC compatible too.
