Doesn't matter if they have it or not, Canon must announce a small 30~34mm EF-S prime (for the 100D) and the 60D/7D replacement ... 'cause the natives are getting restless.

Yes, "must" (you forgot the italics). I may only be one, but (a) whether or not I buy the 100D (or any other APS-C camera) depends largely on whether or not Canon comes up with a small EF-S prime to match; and (b) the 60D/7D replacement is now so long overdue and horrendously under-spec'ed compared to the Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus offerings that neither they (the 60D and the 7D) nor the 6D is a viable option for me (singular, one).

I will say, I don't quite understand why Canon still hasn't made any competition for the likes of sigma's 30 DC HSM...
7D x2
70-200 f/2.8L - 17-55 f/2.8 IS - 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 - 85 f/1.8 - 50 f/1.4 - 28 f/1.8
580ex II - 2x 430ex II

I would also like to see some compact wide/standard EF-S primes! What are the chances? I've got some coins here somewhere... I'll just go and flip 'em! (the same coins that form the basis of my lens fund... i.e, minimal to non existent  :'( )
7D / EF-S 10-22 / 17-40L / 70-200 f4L IS / EF-S 60 macro

So on the 31th they must announce a small 30~34mm EF-S prime (for the 100D) and the 60D upgrade (70D) or a 7D upgrade (7D2) or what happens?

sorry forgot the bold, italics and underline that time  ::)

can't see the 70D being very exciting but when the 7D2 finally appears I think it may just be something very special, not on the 31st though

I think it will be Canon announcing it's first 3D printer.... and it probably comes with the file to print a 70D body and a 1200F5.6 lens....

I believe even the crickets have left the building, horribly depressed.

….. and the tumbleweed rolls silently on

Finger on the pulse as ever M.ST

Seriously though did anyone really expect a big announcement given that this rumour was only for the Netherlands
