Why not buy a used 40D now and keep it as a second body when the 60D surfaces? The decline in 40D values has slowed at this point, I would guess, and you would have the latest (greatest?). How will you feel if you find that the 60D comes out 3 months later and is a stunner? The used 50D prices will plummet at that point, right?

I feel your pain. This has been a real grind....

I sincerely hope the 5D mk3, 24-70 /2.8 IS and 35 /1.4 II would come out.
I would buy them all 3 at once.
Then I would be complete with my 70-200 which i would prefer to use on FF instead of crop.

Back to "quality" rumour reporting I see. Oh well, every click on the main site counts so why not post all those made up "rumours". The qquality difference between say "photorumours" and "canonrumors" is growing by the day.

Similar to my guess, but I'll replace the 35 f/1.4L with 14-24 f/2.8L. These should go nicely with the 60D.

Couple of months later, we should see a cheap EF-S 35 f/1.8 lens (hopefully with ring USM... please please) announced together with an EVIL camera. Canon's biggest competitors Nikon and Sony already have something in this department and I'll be most surprised if Canon does not join the party soon.

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

Such guesses have already been made on this site based on the dates and rates at which Canon released lenses over the past 10 years - 4-5 lenses a year, usually at Feb & Sep, and this year only 1 lens announced at January. Connect the three items, and - Voila! - extrapolate that Canon is to announce three more lenses in September, say in Photokina.

It's a sad state of affairs that it's so easy to produce CR2 level rumors.

Good point. Challenge is to get all three lens predictions correct. ;)

My guesses for September, in order of likelyhood (this should all be pretty obvious by now):

- 60D
- 60mm f/2.8 IS macro

Sometime either in September or later in the fall:

- 24-70L f/2.8 IS
- 35L II
- 1DsIV
- 14-24L f/2.8

Wishful thinking:

- 135L IS
- 200L IS
- other fast primes or a prime-replacing f/2 zoom

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

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 shit 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!!!

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.
