<p>However, weâ€™re told Canon is more interested in getting production up to 100% before announcing new EOS products.</p>
That makes a lot of sense. The 8-15mm fish eye has only just started hitting retailers. It would be a major embarrassment (not to mentioned a huge commercial disaster) for Canon to announce new products which they cannot actually bring into the market.
It would be bad for Canon to start creating loads of hype if they cannot fill the shelves.
It appears that the impact of the earthquake and tsunami may have been far more serious than a lot of us realise. It would be interesting to know how far the likes of Canon and Nikon are on the road back to recovery.
