I wonder if Canon thinks this is the American substitute for the EOS M? It seems like they may classify the M system as Asia only.

a say, 135 (150) - 200mm (or 180mm) macro with 1:1 at 200mm and IS does not sound implausible. zooming out while keeping the same distance would allow for easier framing, would allow better flexibility getting the shot.
120mm TS-E macro
Tamron's problem is that what made the 200-500 an option (cheap, light) might be lost with the addition of 50mm and VC. The 200-500 retailed at $1995 (though it obviously now sells for <$1000), and if this doesnt come in around that price point, what differentiates it from the various Sigma's, the 100-400L (and its possible update), etc?
I can get 150-500 and 120-400 for about $1000 from Sigma...I can get 50-500 for $1500. The Tamron is gonna have to be really sharp or really light
My hope is it's the EF 50mm f/XX IS USM.
What makes you think there's not an upgrade path?
I'd consider the 1Dx a downgrade from just about every camera Canon makes, primarily because the portrait grip isn't removable, and I don't need or want it. It's why I've never seriously considered any 1-series camera, nor will I in the future until and unless they go back to the 1V-style removable grip.
Strange ... That has to be the first ever comment I've seen of someone complaining about the inbuilt grip on a 1 series body but I guess it is a personal preference.
BTW, both my 5D3 and the 6D are gripped. Never taken the grip off them
If this lens is awesome, I'll sell my EF 24-105 f4 to help pay for it.
However...in this range, I'm dying to see what the rumored Siggy 24-70 f2 will look like. I'll probably hold off on anything until it's revealed (IF it's revealed).
If I get 10 years out of it, it'll cost me roughly £100 / year for reliable no worry usage. If I sell it for 80% of what I bought it for....then that's even better.
Same reason here for upgrading from the 100mm non-L macro to the L version ... and my primary concern with the new non-L IS lenses, it's seldom mentioned in tech geek threads. I don't buy red ring because it looks cool (actually I taped it), but because it's much more reliable, and even after less than 10years I'm pretty confident with my 100L/70-300L/17-40L.
