Well closing near the end of 2013, the ball is in Canon's court now for some lens announcement. At of currently, only 4 "unexciting" lens were "officially" announced/released from Canon this whole year.

On the contrary, having the original packaging suggests that you're the legitimate owner, as opposed to having stolen the gear from someone on the street or out of their car, hotel room, etc.
Why doesn't somebody over at Fred Miranda mention the Fotodiox solution. There is no limitation to tilt and or shift. I am not a member there so can't.
As for an expensive never arriving Lee "solution" with limited usability, it is a joke. Go on Amazon and just buy a ready made high quality solution, I just did and the Fotodiox Wonderpana just works.
I don't agree that canon has massive shoes to fill in the landscape department. If you are already on a tripod and doing serious landscape work than I'd put the 17 TSE against the Nikon 14-24 anyday.
Sensors are another matter of course.
I'm sorry but I don't really get many of you guys. Lightroom stays as a standalone application. For some reasons, many amateurs think they have to have Photoshop (and it has to be the latest version, of course) to do their photo editing. Old version of Photoshop/Photoshop Elements/Lightroom may be more than enough for a lot of us. I personally have Master Collection CS5.5 which I got at a discount when I was a student and I'll use it until I upgrade to an unsupported camera or new OS.
Remember that if you buy the Pixma Pro series you should preferably print (size does not matter, so it can be very small) once a week to prevent it from drying out, thus having to waste a lot of ink when enabling the program to get it rinsed. Ink is always an issue, but it takes many type of 3 party papers, thus giving you the chance to print on excellent paper like Canson and Hanhemuhle and other great paper sources.
I am a fulltime photographer and really like the 2711's and when working on photo's for print etc it's really good. But some of the work I deliver is digital only to consumers and that's where it goes wrong. I like my photo's light and fresh and I push that in my workflow. On my calibrated screens I have no blown out whites and really like the photo's. On the clients laptop / crappy screen with no wide-gamut the photo's are to white and have blown out colors.
My solution is placing de U2412m in sRGB mode and since it has no wide-gamut I use that screen to "proof" what the client will see.
