Canon EF-S 18-270 f/3.2-5.6 IS Coming Soon?

A New Superzoom
The 18-200 didn’t light any sales fires for Canon. Omitting USM was a mistake and the lens has never gained the popularity of its Nikon counterpart.

An updated version of the lens has shown up in a patent.

There is no mention as to whether or not this lens will get the USM treatment. Omitting it for a second time would be a mistake.

Announcements
A few people have told me there will be nothing on March 1 as far as DSLR’s go. April is going to be the announcement month. They were told the same thing at NL via Thom Hogan.

18-200 II
A suggestion of a redo of the 18-200 already. This time with USM. Big grain of salt here, though I don’t think Canon’s version of this lens sells as well as Nikons.

5D Mark III
More people saying to expect a 5D Mark III before a 1Ds Mark IV.

No EVIL
“No new system camera” in 2011. I’m going to assume a mirrorless solution is what was being talked about.
