Did the 200-400 have its own event, or was it part of something else?
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

My guess is a 50mm 1.8 or 2.0 with IS and maybe a new 85 also with IS.

Nooooo, Canon is able to bore us own their own, [CR1] threads should be reserved to the juicy stuff!

Plus a change away from "white" to "black" lens...

They wouldn't give up one of their best marketing advantages (as lenses like the 70-300L don't profit from the white color. However, Canon might introduce a new top lens line with silver, gold or platinum coating to make lesser brand photos to be stunned in awe and the crowd in front divide as by magic one the owner arrives :-)

I'd probably enjoy seeing the 100-400 most. Though, I think Canon would be smart to compete in the 12/14-24 f/2.8 range.

Knowing how "mad" they have been with their share to facebook type thingy on the Powershot, perhaps the "superteles" will have a separate function to automatically share to Facebook, mangle pictures with shitty filters on Instagram and the like (perhaps a small wifi/3g module) in line with the camera.

Just hope they don't get inveigled into Apple's "rounded corners" patent gun :) :)

Whatever it is,  hopefully time will tell.

YES I would like that (but a Sigma f/1.4 is more likely to become part of my kit).

Perhaps both?  Won't be 100-400 F4 since that is basically the 200-400.Needs to be 5.6 or variable aperature

replacement for the version II of the 300, 400, 500, and 600 with built-in 1.4 convertors (like the 200-400).  Of course the price would jump by $2,000 per lens (ouch!)

Maybe some bright spark at Canon found out that they could make a 400mm F4 out of the 200-400mm parts laying around, and have decide to replace the DO?

Man, you are optimistic on price.  Anyway, as the 200mm f/2L IS and 800mm f/5.6L IS look like bargains now in the supertele line, I'd bet on both of those being replaced with all the modern improvements of the other version II lenses, a matching paint color (those last-generation lenses look so outdated with different paint color /sarcasm) and an 'updated' MSRP. 

Also good possibilities (only in the 'big' news realm):
45mm TS-E L and 90mm TS-E L
300mm f/4L IS replacement and 400mm f/5.6L IS

Then again, who predicted that Canon would replace the 15mm Fisheye with an 8-15mm zoom?  Maybe we are all thinking a bit too much inside the box.

15mm f/2.8 Fisheye | 28mm f/1.8 USM | 50mm f/1.4 USM | 85mm f/1.8 USM | 3x 420EX | ST-E2 | Canon S90 | SD600 w/ WP-DC4
