I was told this evening that Canon has no plan on stealing any thunder from Nikon before the launch of the D700. In notorious Nikon fashion, stock of the camera will be extremely low. Canon still plans to announce in the 3rd week of August.
I'm still not convinced they'll wait that long.
I've been told both of the cameras will have a CF & SD slot. Canon seems to be committed to moving their entire lineup to SD.
I've been told to expect some redone sigma ultra wide angles for full frame mounts. 16-40 f/2.8-4.0 is a possibility.
There has been no rumors floating around about Tamron or Tokina, but I will keep on trying to get some info.
Thinking out loud…
How quick do you think someone will hack the XSi firmware and make it workable on the XS. I can't see it being too difficult to give the XS highlight tone priority, noise reduction and that auto lighting thing.
Maybe I'm wrong. :)
What about some cool photography?
In the end, this is what it's about. I found this link last night, there's some great aerial stuff here.
If you've seen it before, see it again.. it's worth it.
