There won't be an annoucment I was just saying people are pointing to price drops on the 5D Mark II as a sign of replacement coming, but on the same day the price of the 7D dropped so I was being sarcastic being saying that the price drop must imply that a 7D II is coming.  we all know it is not.
Actually I think it would be logical for Canon to release 7D2 soon. They are not going to use the same 18mp sensor for the Rebel next year, because the history shows that each of the older Rebels had a different "new" sensor and only 550D and 600D had the same one. So, it may be introduced in their APS-C flagship camera to prevent the 7D line laging behind the competition. Despite that 7D is already a very capable camera, there is a lot to improve - LCD display (3:2 or even vari-angle), multiple memory card slots (CF+SD?), more fps (10?), higher speed flash sync, more processing power (dual Digic5), larger buffer, 1080p 60fps video, better performance sensor (cleaner ISOs and better DR), it may not need a new AF or metering system, but it could be like an improved version (rev.2.0). Maybe Canon decided to update all of their xD bodies (1D, 5D, 7D), what's wrong with that?

I agree that's a real possibility.  In fact, given that Digic5 is now out in the P&S, that alone could be enough reason to release the next versions of every DSLR soon.  So we could see the next 1, 5, and 7 series announced at the same time.  That would be unusual but not impossible I think.

This comes from a DigitalREV tweet and facebook post. I'd personally heard nothing about a new camera.

For the moment, November 3 is the day for something.

I think I'm going to stop posting DigitalREV tweets, they've done this twice previously. Once for a Rebel that already existed, and something else I don't remember.

Well, the DigitalRev Twitter page reported that "the team is there right now", but that was six hours ago and they haven't reported back since, which makes me think it must have been something even less exciting that printers. Meanwhile, the only new products on the Canon Japan home page from today are a couple of new calculators, so I guess that must have been it.

Fair enough CR Guy, however, you also posted an update that said "Another person with an invite is telling us that the program only mentions, ink, laser, & multifunction printers" so it would seem that we have multiple sources of mis-information.

Sorry, not going to happen. They have your name and phone number.  They're going to hold it back until you buy one.    ???

Hey shooter, you've made some bold claims and launched a few insults over the past few days over your confidence a new DSLR would be announced today.  How about an apology and an admission you had no facts or inside intel?  And I had my hopes up that you were right although it will still be Sept 22nd for a while longer and maybe it will happen tomorrow so you'll only be a day off.  ;D
