I'm expecting G1X sensor. I'm thinking they will pull a Nikon 1, just less extreme. Unlike Nikon, I hope they can actually capitalize on actually smaller lenses for the smaller sensor.

If the lens is smaller than the 24-70 and 24-105 it could be a nice middle ground walking video lens.
Thank you for contacting Sigma Corporation of America.
We are expecting shipments to start at the end of September.

I'm repeating myself (from other posts) but I really think we will see a Canon SLR in the not too distant future that will give the user the option to crop in and use just a fraction of the sensor to extend the apparent focal length of a lens.

If i'm not mistaken, if i remember right when the 40D came out people were upset that the D300 had a better AF and more MP than the 40D, and grumbles were so loud that Canon basically rushed the 50D to shut up the outcry about the 300D with a HD screen, all 9 cross type AF sensors, and more MP... who says Canon doesn't listen to the clients...
if I'm not mistaken, 40D and 50D is exactly 1 year, while 50D and 60D is 2 years. they can randomly release a camera base on needs I think.
I think it's a reasonable bet that Canon will update the EF 24-70mm and the EF 100-400mm next year.
May I ask why nobody thinks it is the 7D MKII that is coming? what is the product cycle of 7D?
