BTW, CRguy, thanks for the quick note on the SX 30 IS - it did seem gimmicky, but that's based on spec and assumptions about real-world performance.  If the 840mm end is good, that makes the camera a lot more interesting!   Canon's restriction on inserting a memory card for a quick test bites, I must say. 

This is one heck of a lot of glass!

Man, that new 400/2.8L USM Mark II is awesome. Just saw the pic on DPR, the guy was holding it in one hand and it looked so small, like it was an f/4 prime! Hats off to Canon for the 25% reduction in weight.  8)

noticed that too ... that's awesome.  it's going to be a wallet-buster, and unfortunately it will probably be worth the price (which makes it even harder to say no to)

Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing a comparison that includes the new Panasonic GH2 as a smaller option. I'd like to see whether the image quality is comparable.


GH2 ain't too small, buddy!


Looks pretty small in this image compared to a 60D (from the gh2 preview on dpreview)... just over half the weight too.

I realise it's not as small as the GF1 or Sonys, but it's got the new sensor and I want to see how the images compare.

Huh?  "EF 8-15 f/2.8L"   I'm pretty sure it's EF 8-15 f/4L.     The stop-darker lens makes me care very little about upgrading my 15mm 2.8 fisheye.

Do you think we'll still see any new announcements of SLRs or lenses?

Did you really fly al the way from Canada to Colone to see all of this great Canon stuff?  :P I hope you will have fun on the other stands.

What a disappointing day (lets make it a disappointing year). Well, at least it was good for my wallet and I can save a bit more for my dream low noise, not so much MP, low cost FF wonder camera from our Canon friends.
7D, 40D, EF-S 10-22, EF-S 17-55 f/2.8, EF 70-200 f/4 IS, EF400 f/5.6, EF 85 f/1.8, EF 50 f/1.8 II, Sigma 150, Speedlite 430 II

Very interested in some real world reviews of the 60D .. I was anxiously waiting for one with the hopes of taking it with me on a trip to Alaska last month.. but due to the delayed release, I ended up going with a 7D instead.. I'm now wondering if I should sell the 7D and get the 60D if it has pretty much all the same (and more) features.. ? The SX also looks very interesting and potentially tempting, for when I don't feel like lugging around a DSLR.  Thanks for the consistently awesome reviews!

I would keep the 7D. It is a far better camera on a few levels, and with the hit (albeit probably small) that you will take when you sell it, you might only get $100-200 back in your pocket and be stuck with a camera that is not as good. Just keep it and go take pictures :) Enjoy!

There's a lot of neat stuff there, quite a few cameras on show for the sub-DSLR-price crowd.  Though I wonder if they couldn't actually do something smaller and more integrated - from a business perspective, Canon probably would point to the shaky phone shot and say "see, he needed a S95" but it's still extra bulk.  It would be interesting to see if Canon and Nikon would get into the phone market somehow - perhaps designing modules for other manufacturer's phones, not sure.  A good camera phone with sensible controls, IS, and a large sensor would be a great idea I think.  Sony has a good foot in the door anyway.

Out of everything shown there (aside from the 60D obviously) I'm probably most excited about that calculator mouse.  Granted I don't use spreadsheets all that much, but it would be handy for the times I do.  Bye-bye Microsoft Calculator!  I'd need to be able to plug it into a front USB plug of my computer though...haven't looked into using multiple mice at once.

Just wanted to say thanks for being the eyes and ears of Photokina for those of use that can't make it in person.

Since any exciting new announcements by Canon seem unlikely, I'd love to hear more about Fuji's X100, which seems to be a show stealer in my opinion, at least from the photos and videos I have seen of it.

Also, I think I seen a couple of images of the newer Canon 300 & 400mm lenses on display. Any chance you will get a hands on with these to tell us about how they feel compared to the older versions?

Thanks again, and happy Honeymoon!

It looks like canon has all the toys locked away. Thats really poor.

CRGuy, is there anything from the MFD crowd, like a pentax 645d to play with? or the newer hassie backs? Did the Leica booth have the s2 to play with?

I'd sure like to hear some reports about what lenses Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, etc. are showing.

What's this new Sigma 120-300 mm 2.8 sigma look like?

Please ask the Tokina people if the 100-400 IS lens will ever materialize.

And what's the story with these Samyang lenses?

Definately keep the 7d. Unless you have a real need for the articulated screen, since you already have the 7d its not worth changing. Its not like the difference in price would buy a decent lens. It might not even get you a midrange flash.
