I think, there was a Sigma double agent posing as a Canon rep trying to get everyone excited about a lens announcement. There were two lenses on this date, both by Sigma. Just saying.

This is quite interesting as our hopes and wishes for new lens development may be frustrated for quite a while by Canon's apparent efforts to adapt and optimize existing L lenses for use in video production. As we can see with the new cine lenses lens size standardization efforts lead to slightly reduced lens sizes with a corresponding loss in the ability to collect light overall.

To reduce development costs Canon may eventually decide to take care of video requiments with almost all new lens developments (specialty lenses excepted), which may lead us to an era of somewhat smaller apertures in an effort to standardize lens sizes. I am not sure I would like such a change.

Here you go:

Doh - if Canon continues like that (strange IS video primes, L cinema lenses) more people might start buying 3rd party lenses like the latest Sigma models - but in this case, what reason is left to shoot with a Canon camera? Yes-I-know-thats-provokative-and-the-5d3-is-stellar-yada-yada, but at least that's the way I feel with the 60d (-> Nikon d7000) and probably soon the 6d (-> Nikon d600).

this is a good point. A nikon D600 coupled with  some of sigmas new offerings will be a pretty sweet low cost setup that is if they sort out the oil flicking onto the sensor issue.
Say the new sigma 35mm f1.4 the 85mm f1.4 the 120-300 f2.8OS and then the Nikkor 12-24 for the wide end
that setup will be really kick arse

Personally I still prefer the 5Dmk3 to either the D800 or the D600 and I love the canon glass I have. the 70-200 f2.8 for example on a 5Dmk3 is really a great combo
