I got a new lens a month ago, and I'm still learning how to use it properly....I can't imagine a lens per week... Who would buy that many lenses... and more importantly, how would you carry them? :)

If one can afford one lens per month, one would use one's staff to carry one's lenses for one  ;)

"Powershot G1 X II" -could naming get any worse? I guessing it won't be called that.

As for the "EVF-DC1 (External Viewfinder)", I feel like I've entered some sort of timewarp and ended up in 2009, when people may have given a hoot.

[Sorry, seems I'm on a grumpy day today >:(]

PowerShot SX700 HS

Didn't the SX600 HS come out about 5 weeks ago?

How about the PowerShot G1 Y?

Actually, even then nobody gave a hoot ... just ask Panasonic and Olympus.

Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

I'm loving this 'Year of the Lens' so far
Do you believe every ... yearly CR thread regarding 35mm 1.4L II, 100-400 L II etc? I don't. They are so obviously nonsense... Sorry CR 99.9% of your site rocks but some specific "new lens" threads of yours belong to the other 0.1% (they are so NL level... )

Tron, I seriously would consider laughing now and then, maybe at least a smile. Helps.

Not for nothing do I put serious health warnings on most of the 'NL stuff' - people have been sending info for the last 10 years or so, and still I rarely ever see stuff of much accuracy beyond a few weeks before any announcement.

From the top of the main Canon page: "Please do use your common sense when reading these pages, and remember that they are here for entertainment as much as anything else."

awesome, no seriously I am realistic about the lenses and I am more than aware that this is a consumer show. Plus if there are a bunch of new lenses, L lenses to be specific, my GAS may be the end of me.

I understand. I recently got the 24-70 2.8 II and since I sold my 5D2 yesterday a second 5D3 is imminent. More than enough for now...

no sx50 replacement??
No, basically it is just garbage. No sign of the cameras everyone is waiting, SX60 and 7D, which promise to be a significant boost. Maybe that is the reason, it is easy to lunch something that is almost equal to the predecessor, but takes a lot of time to launch significant changes. Maybe the delay is a good sign...

How much did you get for the 5Dmk2?

Nothing can be as bad as the Nissan naming schemes but Canon sure is running out of them if they want to avoid superstitions and have old and new coming full circle

I asked 1100 euro and dropped it to 1000. It had 19200 clicks and it was in an excellent condition. So maybe it was on the cheap side (the buyer admitted that he would have to buy it even if I didn't drop the price but we had agreed and a deal is a deal, plus he was a student). But it was sold quickly and I am free to order a 5D3...  :)

Well, the previous powershots were all f/2ish to f/5ish, so, maybe it indicates that the aperture on the tele end will be brighter
