Manufacturers typically announce before a event, not during.  This is because they want to show off a model or prototype and hand out brochures during the event.

I believe that the event started today in Shanghi, so if there is a announcement, we should have heard.  http://www.canon.com.cn/expo2011/index_en.html

Maybe a Jackie Chan gold 5D MK II.

Actually, the event starts at 2pm in Shanghai so if there's a 12 hour difference from Eastern time, then it hasn't even started yet. It should start in about 1 hour.

Zero Chance!!

That is not how Canon or other camera companies announce major new cameras or lenses.  They send out invitations about two weeks to news reporters inviting them to a press conference which is held 2-7 days before a major event.  They do not just show up with a major new product.  Canon wants the free publicity, and their booth in the event will have a big display covering new products.

Its those invitations that are leaked.  The invitations do not say what product will be, but it is known at that time that a major announcement might be made.  Sometimes its just a new printer or scanner.

There were no invitations to such a event!
