"None of them will be a new “G” camera."

No more G camera will come, they will replace it with a mirrorless one in 2012.

No DSLR announcement soon?
Well how about sme stock soon then? 5D2's seem a plenty with prices dropped and every man and dog throwing in battery grips and batteries (just coincidence, i know), 1Ds3 unofficially doesn't exist, and have you tried getting a 1D4? No - well, there aren't that many of them available to purchase in the UK.

Canon compacts - absolutely brimming with them - can't pop into a shop selling digital compacts without seeing something with 'Canon' written on it.

Maybe Canon are trying to tell us they're getting out of the DSLR game altogether?

Please do not post non-DSLR rumors. After all, this is www.canon5D3rumors.com  ;)

And Canon, please give those who've invested heavily in your system something to care about and want to hear about, which are DSLRs.

So, Nikon will give us one, maybe two FF dSLRs, with 'big megapixels.'  Canon will give us big megapixels, too, but they'll be crammed into a sensor the size of a pinhead, so they can market a super-mega-ultrazoom, say 50x, without needing a lens the size of, well, a cannon.  Where's the 1DsIV love?
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

I just hope one of the compacts has a sensor at least as large as the S95's.  I'm waiting for the 5D Mark III like a lot of you, but on my next trip I have to travel light.

And you are thinking this based on??????

Aren't the Dxx series from Canon updated every year - so my best guess is there'll be a EOS D70 around... I know it doesn't help most of us but that's just calendar logic.

5D3 is just somehow going to be a HUGE anticlimax. Just have an inkling.

bummer
they keep releasing them later and later each time
first you could get them in time for entire fall sports, then in time for fall foliage, then in time for fall sports playoffs, now....

OTOH make sit less tempting jump in at release price and just wait until spring at this point and get some savings.

(yeah yeah this depends where you live of course, although tons of population lives in areas where this is the case, if certainly plenty where this is not)

5D3 is just somehow going to be a HUGE anticlimax. Just have an inkling.

maybe they gave the body such an under spec again and then got wind of some awesome Nikon specs (24-28MP, 6-7fps, top of the line AF, GPS, full-sensor scaled video with advanced controls compact D700-like body? no i have no idea of the specs, just making up stuff) and got got too embarrassed to release their new 5D2 with 32MP, 4fps, 15pt (3 x-type) slow AF, no advanced AF or video controls, no GPS, bare bones no nothing body, heh and have to retool up a new body for the sensor and release it next year instead

hopefully not, you'd have to think Canon would be smart enough to not do what you fear (5D3 a little 20D to 40D like upgrade)

How sure are we about the Nikon announcements.  It looks like it is also mainly down to speculation as to what Nikon will announce on the 24th.  The main consensus seems to be that their mirrorless system will be announced - which will still be a big threat to Canon.
Whether or not Nikon will announce more DSLRs still seems to be a matter of speculation.  If they do, that may force Canon's hand.  So, I guess if Nikon do announce a new DSLR (or two) it is good for everyone, as Canon would have to follow soon after.
