Thanks Kyle, for the nerdy summary of dSLR lifetimes. Posts like yours are a zillion times more interesting than the "why I prefer Canon/Nikon over Nikon/Canon" posts.

Thanks for the info. Data like these are helpful and additive whereas speculation and innuendo are at best whimsical.

Guess I made my first post count.  Thank you for the kind comments.

According to me.  This is a rumors site after all so I am starting a rumor.  15-60 f/4L IS

Ok. ;)
How much will it cost? Four times the price of 17-40? ;)

A little more analysis:

The time between 1D and 1Ds releases shows us a full-frame high-end camera will likely be released in mid 2011

Shortest time from 1D->1Ds is the Mark III (179 days)
Mark II (236 days)
Longest time from 1D->1Ds is the Mark I (364 days)
Based on that and the release date of the 1D Mark IV the next in line should be announced between April 17 and October 19 2011.

I think 2011 will bring replacements for (in chronological order):
Rebel XS replacment (12MP, 720p video, ISO 3200 max)
7D Mark II
1Ds Mark IV
T2i replacement (entry-level 7D Mark II specs)

Based on existing trends I don't think Canon will release a 5D Mark III with specs similar to 1Ds Mark IV until 2012.  That doesn't mean that Canon could buck the trend a release a different enthusiast FF camera in 2011.

15mm f/2.8 Fisheye | 28mm f/1.8 USM | 50mm f/1.4 USM | 85mm f/1.8 USM | 3x 420EX | ST-E2 | Canon S90 | SD600 w/ WP-DC4

Replacement of
- Rebel XS: I don't think so. T1i is going to be the new XS.
- 7D: hummmmm, I don't think, we will see it coming 2011
- T2i: I'm not sure. My guess would be, that Canon waits longer than a year,before they release the T3i. The T2i is speced very well.
