Hey all. Whats the latest and greatest rumor on the 1 series? Im sick of my 20d, I trie dmy boss's Mark II and just feels perfect, and the fps and the autofocusing, it's like porn for a 16 year old haha. Im not saying 20D is a bad camera, I feel the 1 series is more of a fit for my photography, I couldn't afford it durring the switch from Nikon.

When I spoke with the guy that I buy everything through he said that Canon will have some more announcements to make at Photokina but not to expect anything big in the high end. Perhaps some more p&s. I know he was at a meeting with Canon a couple of weeks ago and had to sign a confidentiality agreement. I believe he was trying to tell me not to wait for anything in the 1 series this go round without actually saying anything that would breach the agreement that he signed.
Canon has such a lock on the high end market right now, and in particular the FF market, that I see them concentrating more on the prosumer (which I feel the 5D falls into the high end of) market where they face the most competition. You only have so much in the way of resources for R&D and then marketing on top of it that they have to pick a target and stick with it.
In the end, rumors are just that and Photokina is not that far off, I'm just happy to wait it out.
