or you could say it will not be earth shattering because canonrumors had no clue about an "annoucement" prior to the teaser... but then.... that´s always the case isn´t it?   8)

Looks like a leather lens cap for one of the larger lenses in the picture...800mm 5.6 II?  But then they're saying it won't be anything too big so your guess is as good as mine.

shadow and light created by objects...
Reminds me about a flash or something. May be some EX-440-RT.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't know what's in that picture, but it doesn't look like a flash, I could look like a elinchrom quadra style head. I think canon should make a 600-1200 Ws battery flash fully compatible with the st-e3 and speedlites. Surprised they have left all that to ProFoto, Elinchrom and others.

The object in the photo is a Chawan (Japanese Tea Bowl).
Think it's just an obvious object to illustrate the text used in the teaser.
My guess too is that it's most likely flash related.

I have no "artistic eye", the picture looks like a tea cup. Sounds like Canon will be serving dim-sum with hot tea in HK

It's a possibility, but I'm not 100% convinced it's not a leather cap.

Objects do not create light and shadows.  Sooo, I'm leaning toward improved imaging chips or off chip processing that increase the latitude from pure black to pure white.  DXO type chip mapping with noise reduction would be welcome.  Wishful thinking. 
Or maybe it's a new printer- LOL

Probably their own 50 1.4 as they are about to lose out on a ton of money if they don't announce something before the Sigma is released.

The Sigma is indeed a amazing lens but there is a big price difference (about 950 versus about 399). Futhermore you also want to get the USB dock tot callibrate the Sigma. I expect Canon will suffer a drop in 50 1.2L sales ...
