How many super-zooms (e.g 800mm) are there for PL mount?
How many 800mm zoom lenses are available for EF?

One, as far as I know - the Sigma 300-800.

The Arri sensor is not FF in the same way the Canon 5D is.... it is not a 24x36 sensor.
The Alexa sensor has an image out size of 23.76 mm x 13.37 mm (16:9) is  2880 x 1620 Pixels

The Alexa, and Sony F3 are both super-35 equivalent  sensors (with the dimensions mentioned above), which are less than full frame.

Maybe they just want to reach out the market who can't quite run to one of these yet?

(OK, I know I cheated, that's a TV lens not a cine lens, but it's still pretty cool).

Can you explain how that qualifies as a "super-zoom" lens, or any kind of zoom lens?  Perhaps you should check out this other wiki page:

Interesting to see a small visionary American company taking on Canon on the very same day!

http://www.red.com/

Feeling more than very let down by Canon over the not for me new 1D line I rather hope they trump their Oriental competitors.

Do you mean the re-announcement of Scarlett by Red?  Is was already announced in 2008 for shipment in 2009?  Are some still waiting for it?

Come on, Japan has been a US military outpost since WWII.  That makes them part of the empire in my book.

Oh, you mean I should have just called it a "super telephoto" lens instead of zoom?

Means the same to me :-P

Just remember that the next time you need to reframe a shot with a prime lens.   :P  With an 800mm lens, you might need to walk a few hundred feet to do that, while someone with Woody's 300-800mm zoom would just twist the zoom ring and take the shot.

Too bad that none of Canon's prime lenses actually have prime numbers for the focal length.

Im surprised none of you find this more exciting....do you realize the hardware thats required to make this thing work? 10k would be steal. Im hoping it does 4k full HD directly to CF, because that would really make some RED competition. Obviously canon is saving less-compressed video for their video cameras - or else why would the new 1DX still do H264?

Super 35mm sensor isnt so bad either - your going to export to 16x9 or wider anyways, no need for the extra space (and processing power needed) for a taller sensor.

As for EF v PL mount, Im guessing it will be able to do both via adapter. Very useful considering that there is some high quality EF glass out there - and you can adapt most other lenses (nikon F, pentax, etc) to EF already. I think the real question we should be asking is:

Whats the deal with AF? EF video lenses? New lenses releasd by canon for concurrent use with the DSLR's and new cinema cameras? This could get very interesting.

Well, the web page I asked for a list of Canon's prime lenses didn't list any of the TS lenses, so it would seem that there's some disagreement about whether that is considered a prime lens :D

Here is the scoop on the November 3 announcement by Canon:

The camera to be announced will be priced at above $50,000. (body only).

How do I know this?  Because:
1. The president of Canon is flying from Tokyo to Hollywood for the announcement.
2. Invitations for the event have only be sent to mainstream studios and other high end studios.
3. The public is not invited to the event because there is no room for a big audience in the small room where the announcement will be made in the new Canon offices on the Sunset-Gower studio lot.

So based upon these FACTS, sorry to crush your wishful thinking of a $10,000. camera, but this is not a consumer or even pro-sumer or even independent filmmaker event.  This is an event for mainstream studios.

The camera to be announced is designed to compete with Sony's F65 CineAlta 4K camera, a $65,000 body only camera.

Later, next year, you'll hear some trickle down for lesser models at lesser price points with less features.  But not on November 3.
