Would love to know what the 70-300L means for the future of the 100-400L! A raw file from the 120mp would be sweet but I know it wont happen. It would be so nice if canon could give us some idea of their lens roadmap as we would be able to buy with less worry and more accuracy but again it aint happening :(

Thanks for keeping us updated and enjoy the show!

Did you see that 46 MP foveon X3 sensor on the new Sigma? Talking about resolution on APS-C size! :P And the 150 macro with OS. I just bought the one without  >:(.
Yeah, love it, but divide by 3 (15.3 Mpixel), as a normal pixel site has RGB in one pixel.

If sigma have managed to make a true 15mp foveon sensor without stupid noise levels that would be truly awesome.

I wonder if canon would ever go down that route? not for the 1d but maybe the 1ds? Theres no doubting there is merit in the idea, its just the execution.

True, but the resolution will be better, the colors will be more accurate, the .... (I almost sound like a Siggy rep., sorry). Read this link to see the differences: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foveon_X3_sensor#Comparison_to_Bayer_filter_sensors_.E2.80.93_operational_differences

The only thing I don't understand is that the camera only takes CF type I. Curious if Sigma can handle the delivery this time.
Also a pitty that you can't use good Canon glass on this one. I think with a resolution like that (again it is better than the resolution of a 50D) one need very good glass for optimal results.

Whats the 60D like for practicality function with the flip-out screen? If the screen is extended out to the left, does it get in the way of your left hand for quick focus adjustments, zooming etc? Or would you have to hold it underneath the lens a little more? I'm thinking if when you are shooting high crowd shots or low level and need to make quick adjustments - does not 'get in the way' a little - or do you not notice any difference. I like the idea of the articulated screen and manual mic so considering this more than the 550D, but still little bit of me thinking 7D.

So no 2000D / 1Ds MkIV / 5DMkIII / 3D  from Canon... :(
I kinda expected this but it's still a little disappointing... :-\

My thoughts too. I was expecting a surprise, but unfortunately I have to wait until Canon makes me a low noise low MP and low $$ FF camera ::).

I love my old pentax spotmatic. I love that the shutter dial always changes the shutter, the aperture ring on the lens always changes the aperture. And that's about all the buttons there are!The Fuji camera seems to be a welcome step back in this direction. Maybe Canon will make a similar camera ;Da...
What is truth?

cf type one would only exclude microdrives right? Theyre not really mainstream like they used to be.

As for more mp the better, 15mp is plenty, I'd take awesome color at 15mp over mediocre at 45mp. I never got (beyond the obvious marketing) why siggy made so much out of having all three photosites on top of each other but then quoted the resolution for photosites not pixels. Yes it makes a bit more sense then bayer 'guess the other 2 color technique) but personally I'd love to see them go to bat with this as a 15mp 'full colour' awesome camera. Remember fuji and their two sized pixel malarky, great idea but it was always better at half res then full voodoo res.

So CR guy :) any word from canon abt lens announcements, 20-60 2.0 IS please :)

the fact that the X100 is going to be priced closer to $1K makes a lot more sense ... which is promising, because then Fuji will sells lots of these, and canon will have further impetus to get in on the action in this market segment.

I'm rather impressed by the amount of glass on the SX30 IS ... but a little disappointed that it's using a 1/2.3" rather than 1/1.6" sensor.  I know thats how it gets the zoom range, but still ...

Yeah.  Great on a sunny day in an open setting.  Else, oh the noise, the noise Noise NOISE! (Echoes of Dr. Seuss)...

Are there any special presentations by Nikon or Canon?  If so what time.  I am curious to see if Nikon releases there supposed "Q" EVIL camera (Doing so would only cause Canon to follow shortly behind, especially before the Holidays).

I'm also praying for a wave of announcements by Canon.

WHERE IS THE 24-70 2.8 IS!? OR Canon EVIL Camera

Theres normally big leaks in the 24 hrs before launch so I'm guessing we wont be seeing anything big from canon soon :(
I dont buy the whole canon doesnt need the 1ds4 as nikon is pants argument because the d3x is a solid camera, I can understand them stretching a cycle to include a new feature or for financial reasons, but by now they have to be starting to think about the 1ds5, the 1ds4 should be pretty much ready to roll.

As for siggy glass and the foveon sensor, very fair point, fuji uses the nikon mount right? sensible choice, although I can see it would be embarassing for a major glass maker like sigma to use a nikon mount. Sigma glass can be pretty good, the problem is the fact it can also be poor and some of the build quality is abysmal. At least sigma cranking out better sensors pushes canikon to do the same!

I've been waiting for months for this event to hear something about 5D MkII and EF 24-70 f2.8 upgrades. Seems like its time to buy the old stuff :(
