Or an price increase?
LOL, an impossibly high price increase! That will get a lot of people REALLY pissed, especially if advertised in this manner... ROFL!
But seriously, this could be a message from Canon USA to Canon Inc.

Well, once again Nikon is ahead of Canon in offering modern upgraded lenses, like the 35/2, 50/1.8, 50/1.4, 55/1.4, 85, 16-34/4 etc etc etc etc. And now it's this great looking 20/1.8. What a great astro photography lens, not to mention landscapes.
Go shoot Nikon, you say. I don't want to. I like my 6D and 70-200/4is. I just wish they'd make a 20 like this Nikon.
It is a question of capability, not intent.
Maybe the patent game backfired on Canon and now they may not use that great sensor they just developed?
You can tell from their interviews that they just don't feel like spending the money, so nothing less than people going on and on and then starting to buy other stuff and suggest other stuff will prod them into action.
Just saw the $50 price drop this afternoon on Amazon... thought I'd share the savings...
Maybe Amazon is starting their Xmas pricing early.
So i have this plume wafer softbox thing with a speedotron head mounting plate. it's in pretty good working order, i just don't need it. If interested PM me. I'm not selling it, i'm giving it away, so i hope it's okay to post this here. (couldn't really find a freebie area!) anyway, i only ask that you cover shipping.
Back on topic: I don't see why people are venting because of the interview. The gentleman that was interviewed was allowed to give the interview because he has the one required skill - he can talk for hours and say nothing.
just checked out their website. Sounds pretty straightforward and legit. Anyone who has direct experience with them?
I have not bought through street prices, but here are some things that they advertise and these are easily verified (and should be verified, IMO):
1. You will be dealing directly with the dealer.
2. It will be the same as buying from the dealer with warranty, returns, etc. as applicable.
3. Only authorized Canon dealers participate.
The reason for street prices to exist is the dealers cannot advertise the discounted prices openly, so CPW acts as a middleman bringing in potential buyers at the actual discounted price (or maybe a bit higher, taking commissions into consideration). So you are not buying from CPW.
There have been two recent threads discussing the street price with actual buyers reporting that they were happy with the deal.
Ah, thanks Mt. Spokane!
I checked out prices for the 50 and 35 Art lenses... The 50 is not available at all. The 35 Art is available for $679, but.... it's only available in the Pentax mount! LOL
So I guess we still haven't figured out where all those returned Canon mount Art lenses are going.
Perhaps the percentage of returned lenses is much less than what one would guess from reading online reviews and blogs?
Not that anyone asked, but what I would consider the ideal sensor resolution, would be 15360x11520 (177MP).
That's 16k resolution, with the AR brought back to 4:3. Add on die 4:1 & 16:1 binning, and you've got 8k and 4k for video, or super clean 44MP or 11MP RAWs.
That would kick ass! Especially if it was paired with 20 stops of DR. I could use that all day long.
I'm surprised someone hasn't mentioned the 17-40, not bad for the price.
Another angle is a 40D and a 17-50; the Tamron non-VC one is pretty good and you could get both for under $500.
