the other thing is even if they announce a new lens when will the lens actually be available they already announced delays to the previously announced long lenses...

Maybe it's a pancake lens or something similar with only 5 elements that they can produce quickly and cheaply, just so they can say, "Hey, look, we don't delay every lens, just the ones you actually want"

It will be the new 24-70 IS.  Bet the house on it.  Want to know why???? Because I just ordered the original from B&H.    Grrrrrr  And, that means it will be a superb, transformative lens that will instantly drop the value of the one that I will have had for a week by a significant amount.  LOL
It could be a new EF-S standard prime lens as well, because I've just switched to FF  ;D ... like fast 28mm
FF + primes !

ecka,

If it is the fast efs lens, I'll buy you the first round.  We just need to find a bar close by one of us!

a 12mm-600mm f1.2 IS Macro L series lens with built in gyro and tripod and automatically packs itself up and cleans itself... oh and transforms into a coffee machine.

I'll bet my house on it :)

If the fabled December 6th lens was a reality, we would have heard by now and the CR guy would have told us about a press conference to announce "the lens" by now (probably the weekend b/4).  Looks like no lens announcement.  I hope nobody sold their 24-70 (or whatever) in anticipation of getting whatever.

well it's 10:48 in Australia (the parts that matter, anyway), and there's nothing on any of the english-language sites in this half of the world (.au, .sg, .hk, .nz) as of yet. Might happen later, but i'm still calling cr0
