Hi,

so it seems as the first sites get information about the Canon news, there is no new 1 series for the Photokina.
A new 400D with a cross your fingers! dust removal system...

http://www.photokina-show.com/0131/canon/digitalslrcamera/canoneos400d/

three new lenses:
50mm 1.2L
200 mm 1.8 L
and a new 70-200 4L

the 200 1.8L sounds nice for me.

Ok lets wait for the PMA, my money stays with me for a while i guess

Where do you see something about a 200 f/1.8?

this info was in a thread at fred miranda, and was as it seems confirmed from several canon dealers.

Hard to believe an 200 1.8L without IS!

Even leaks make occasional mistakes :)

o you really think they would introduce a new entry level SLR with a higher pixel count than one of their Series 1 models (1D Mark 2N). I doubt it. Just my two cents.

Somehow I doubt that these two cameras would be in a direct competition against each other. I for sure know which one my wife would prefer, and vice versa :)

Yes, they will and they just did. The pixel count is not the only important feature of a camera. Professionals know this and understand this.

I agree Johan,

Even with an f2.8 lens, neither the new 10MP camera nor the 5D with 12MP can compete with the 8MP 1DII cameras in ability to focus and track.

For professional work, that is what is important not pixel count.

Now throw on an f4.0 lens and the new little camera loses its central more useful focus point and is really a non-player for fast work. The 5D is not much better!

Megapixels smegapixels (I'm still doing ok with 4mp ID), the killer for me is lack of spot meter. I use spot solely for metering and would be lost without it.

I'll stand by my original post and furthermore I think you can be pretty well assured that by February of 2007, there will be at least one 22 megapixel Series 1 body.

I like and do (very) large size print, give me more pixels! (and I'll keep my 1DS Mk II as back-up!)

Ahmen and Ihave the same plan for the same reasons. All things being equal, more pixels equal higher resolution.
