Canon teaser for 4/24 announcement -- new fast prime?

I have no idea how Photo Rumors came to the conclusion that it's a fast prime, but FYI regardless.

I'll be the first to say that this would be a great time to unveil the non-L 50mm F/nooneknows IS lens before everyone gives their ducats to Sigma.   :P

Seriously, no takers on this?  Aren't new lenses our #1 favorite thing to talk about?   :D

I say RT-compatible studio lights.  That seems like an easy cash cow for them.

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

If Canon put in their official web site, it is interesting for sure.

But of course! Canon has at long last officially embraced low dynamic range as a feature! The new line of sensors will now have even less dynamic range! Brilliant!

"Delighting you always" is what they went with for a slogan as "Delighting you as infrequently as possible" was already taken.

I want this announcement to be something pricey that I don't need.  I will then rant for days about how Canon built the wrong pricey thing as it was not the pricey thing I needed.

And then we'll discuss a nuts rumor about how the words 'need' and 'want' mean two different things.
