This story is one of three things.

1) Some kind of satirical joke? (not very funny at the comedic level)

2) They know something that is true!

3) A great way to get some traffic to their site. (Gullible sites like ours will link to this story, ahhh drats.)

I'm not sure what it is, but you can all decide.

Thanks for the tip Rodrigo

  1. Well, I plan to buy a 70-200 F2.8L IS USM next year, and it did not drop a single cent in worth.
    So whatever the rumors say, i’m gonna buy one.
    Or is there a proof that a Mark II is underway?
