After all Canon and Kodak are the only ones that make fullframe DSLRs. With Nikon, Pentax and Konica-Minolta at 1.5x and Olympus at 2x my guess is that Canon will stay at 1.6x on their lower end DSLR (e.g. x0D and x00D). And that will give us cheaper cameras, better telephotolenses and a new line of EF-S lenses for wieangle.

The only sad thing about this is that i'm not going to be able to use these lenses on my 10D, but then there are the new Tokin/Tamron wideangles to look at...

Canon's representative seems to see a bright future for EF-S
lenses. It does not make me too happy - I use my film camera quite
a bit (intend to buy full frame DSLR as soon as the cost becomes
reasonable) and will buy only "full frame lenses". I am afraid that
there will be fewer new, "normal" lenses available.
