1DsIV & 60D
24-70LIS, 50 1.4 replacement(L?), 100-400 replacement(maybe EFs prime)

3D, 35LII

I was considering the 7d, but if i got it, I would have to buy a cheaper lens because I really only want to spend 2 grand in total on tripod, camera, and lens.  "This is my first camera, but I still know a S___ load about DSLRs"

P.S:  My Friend owns a 7d and my other friend owns a Nikon D300s, and trust me, the 7d is better!!!

Only a moron would use 14-24 on a crop body.  ;)

Tell that to the morons out there who use the Sigma 12-24, Canon 16-35 and 17-40 etc on a crop body.

While the 14-24 may be more suited for release with a 1Ds4, it is not clear whether the latter will be released this year.

They threw in the 14mm II under the "big" press release of the 1ds3, I wouldn't be surprised if they did it again for the 14-24 with the 1ds4, but some speculation as to whether the 1ds4 will even be released this year...though if I recall the 14mm II/1ds3 was a summer/august announcement...so maybe as the lens and camera are both overdue (wishful thinking again)!

I think it will be 2 lenses followed by a third.

Two lenses announced with 60D =

60 2.8 Macro - I don't know why but this seems to be the consensus
24-70 2.8 IS - because it's so long overdue

1Ds4 in November/December with a redesigned prime 50 or 35.

Why are people so convinced that the 60mm macro will get an update with I/S?  Just because of the patent?

The bigger question for me is why would someone prefer to have this lens over the 100mm macro?  While I know there are cost and size advantages, I would think the not-as-pleasant out-of-focus areas, EF-S limitation (can't mount to FF), shorter working distance, and probably poorer build construction would be things you wouldn't want to give up.

It seems to me there are more important lenses in the line-up that are actually in need of an update.

If we only get three lenses, I hoping 60mm macro is NOT one of them. (Already have the 100mm). I suppose it might be an "easy" upgrade for Canon if it's an EF-S lens – Add IS and call it good. But, not sure of the demand.

Then again, I'm not sure why they needed four tilt-shift lenses either.

Can't really get too excited about any of the lenses that are surfacing in the rumors. Maybe good news for my checkbook, even if doesn't feed my addiction.

I'll tell ya, If the 60d doesn't come out before or during the month of september... I'm buying a 50d!!!

I'd suggest a 7D. No risk of buyer's remorse there.

i just did that for the exact same reason...
7d is fantastic

I think a EF-S 60mm H-IS would be an attractive option for people who sticks to APS-C bodies. You'd be a lot better off with IS at the 100mm range (roughly 96mm with 1.6x bodies). The current 100mm becomes a 160mm, so the 100mm macro w/o IS  might not make a good choice for entry model owners.

As for TS-E lens, they serve the niche market of architecture and landscape photography. While the general public may not see a need for these specialized primes, it makes life a lot easier for those who makes a living out of these fields (right now there's probably no competitor for the 17mm TSE).

and tilting on the 90mm is excellent for taking shots of products

The money maker for canon and best defense against Nikon would be to match and exceed their lenses for pros. Candidates:

24-70 2.8 IS - exceed
14-28 2.8 - match
50 1.4 IS - exceed
35 1.4 II - exceed
500 5.6 IS - exceed
600 5.6 IS - exceed
135 1.8 IS - exceed

I hope they announce the 60D and I will be buying it along with the EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS. Otherwise, I will be picking up the 7D.  I have almost pulled the trigger on the 7D a few times while buying glass or other electronics on Amazon.

My 2 cents:

1. A new kit lens with a new body, say the 60D or 1Ds mk IV. Canon announced new bodies regularily, and has announced - on average over the last decade - one kit lens per year.

2. New TS-E 45mm & 90mm. Considering the TS-E 17mm & 24mm were announced 18 months ago, I think Canon would announce new TS-E 45mm & 90mm before the end of 2011.

3. Primes. I'll put my money on something like a new EF 180mm f/2 Macro H-IS USM, or EF 28mm f/1.4L USM.

i would love more primes, because i love my fast lenses, but those sound highly unlikely.  the 180 will not get 1 2/3 stops faster all at once (though it would be awesome) and a 28 is too close to the 24.  I hope the 24-105 goes to 2.8, or some zoom lens gets a constant f/2.  my viewfinder is just too spoiled by f/1.4 to settle for an f/4 zoom, no matter how sharp it is.
