The current frontpage headline reads "aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!  Tons of information coming in about possibly the most anticipated camera of 2012 (sorry Nikon)."

Now I started to wonder. What do you think this "aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!" signifies?

I think it signifies that you're overanalyzing/over-thinking the post

But seriously I think it's the CR guy "screaming" because there is so much info pouring in right now

+1

I agree that its just an overload of emails and information, and it appears that none of it can be confirmed at the moment. I think that would lead to a frustrated/overwhelmed scream.

Its all CR1 stuff, just fodder for discussion.  Nothing to actually indicate something will be arriving.

Overload, but not despair. 

More like, "Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh, I've got over two thousand emails in my inbox, most of them are about the 5DIII/X and I've got to sort through them all in case there's one golden nugget in there amidst all the manure...

Or so I imagine Craig may be feeling...

"...it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

Just kidding -- couldn't resist. What is education worth if you can't laugh!

I thnk it mean relief, finally!  With so much talk about new camera body over the last few years the moment of true is finally approaching for the pro-level EOS body. 

For me personally though, it means, Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh...it will be an expensive year for my new toys this year!

While making this poll, I found it very funny how reading the "aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!" for every poll option actually sounds different in my head each time.

It could mean finally I can compare the specs and decide. Would be nice to gets hands on new bodies this year.
The pre-production 1DX was nice but no playback was a killer.

BTW I'm impressed how Canon keeps everything in secret. Even if there are NDAs, there are ordinary workers involved in cooperative companies (subvendors, marketing agencies, not to mention field testers). Do they do everything on their own (designing brochures, printing, rollups etc.) to avoid any leak?
