Expect a REALLY Big announcement on Monday
« on: March 30, 2013, 09:17:18 PM »
My sources tell me that on Monday we will see lots of incredible announcements - Canon buying Hassy or will it be Leice.  Perhaps a MF Canon.  Nikon D800 with a Canon name on it.

What are you expecting on Monday, the first of April?

A cruel April Fool's joke?   ???  I'd trust announcements not made on that day more.

Ever notice how Christmas mechandises is offered in October?  Still back and enjoy all the great rumors that will be coming our way.   ;D

The EU is to announce that it is banning April Fools Day as part of the Carbon reduction programme.  It will be replaced by a No-click day when no one is allowed to press a computer key, screen or mouse or a camera button. They estimate they will save 12% of CO2 production resulting from lower electricity consumption, activity from on-line sales, muscle activity and WiFi radiation.  Riots are predicted in Cyprus and on Mt Spokaneb.

Canon are certainly not beyond April Fools press releases. I remember a couple of years ago they did a 100-400 lens "release" with night vision or something

Useful post.  Thanks for reminding me that was coming up.

Just like New Years is "amateur drinking night", April 1 is "amateur joke day" -- rarely does anything funny arise.  It's bad when the idiot Media gets trolled and re-reports (like when they do it for the Onion).   It's worse when Wall Street takes an "announcement" and farks with a stock's price based on it.

Maybe I'll take the day off.

Did we really need two of the same?

Yes, what is the point of starting two threads essentially the same?

The return of eye-controlled focus?
The return of DEP mode?

Canon Europe spokesperson Olaf L'Iorp refused to be drawn.  As photographs are quicker to sit for.
