According to Jouko Tuominen is new CEO of Canon Svenska AB, Canon plans to launch 100 new products in the fall.
I'll assume it isn't 100 new cameras!

EF 24-70mm 2.8 L *IS* USM, how much would *that* weigh? LOL! At what point do you need to start tripoding the IS glass? ;-)
Love to see a new 300 f4 IS II with silent focus and improved IS (that performs with tripod) – great lens but in need of an upgrade.
How about a new 400 f4.5 IS with that sweet sliding lens hood, it’s such a great design.
It would be very easy for Canon to fit a camera between a Nikon D300 and Canon 5D2 and not reduce sales of the 50D or 5d2.
Take everything in the Nikon D300 and put in a Canon 14MP 1.3 sensor, for $2000 US. (You do know that the Nikon D300 is a 1.5 corp camera right, so there is no need to go FF against it.)
Regarding the Nikon D700, Canon can take everything in the Nikon D700 and put in a 16mp FF sensor, for $3000. Then photogs that want MP will buy the 5D2, and photogs that need a better body and FPS will buy this new camera.
Doesn’t seem that hard to figure out to me.
I won’t hold my breath on any of it.
The discrepancy between launch dates and availability from Canon has become something of a joke.
Never mind products loaded with bugs.
I’m done with their sordid marketing tactics.
Hope that a 7D is in their 100 new products list :D
