Rumor Roundup ala Planet5D
@PlanetMitch over at Planet5D has posted a rumor roundup that touches on Canons events in the next month or so.
He's also invited me to talk live on his site on Monday, October 3, 2011 at 3PM EST.
Patent – The return of the aperture ring.
@Photography Bay has posted a patent pertaining to aperture rings returning to lenses. The ring would be for video capture on DSLRs.
Apparently the PRO-1 moniker is for a “series” of printers. I'm not sure if we'll see more than one. I know printers aren't all that exciting, we're waiting for the juicy EOS stuff.
Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Availability?
The most recent information I have is it will be officially announced this fall, with a Q2 2012 availability.
Canon still has to start churning out the new 500 and 600.
