This looks like we have two options here: It might be the fabled new high MP 1-series model or it might be some new video-specialized model similar to the 1D-C. I hope for the former and fear it will be the latter.

Looks to be a general Canon promotional event not a product announcement. Probably similar to the "Live Learning" events that Canon puts on in the U.S.

+1, doesn't look like an announcement, just Canon waving their flag.

And here for a short moment I was getting my hopes up, albeit it seems for no good reason.  :'(

The englisch translation is absolutely right. Even if you read the german text very carefully, there is not the slightest hint to a product announcement, all it says is that it is just a simple presentation of the canon products.

Maybe the "surprise" is on that theme - but that Canon might license its Autofocus to Zeiss to allow Zeiss to make EF-mount Autofocus lenses - or am I just dreaming?

nothing in that comment indicates that zeiss has something to do with it.

he just wrote that his former uni pals are now working for canon and told him about a suprise from canon.

And if the image stabilization fails, you end up with egg on your face...
