In reply to mfurman, Oct 7, 2004

in case you didn't already see it, from another Canon executive in Japan earlier this week, translated here:
http://hobday.net/canon/

It seems Canon clearly wants to grow all 3 current DSLR segments, FF, 1.3x, 1.6x as part of their overall plan, to grow total market share, rather than a one-size-fits-all strategy. anyhow, some interesting info - complements the below-mentioned article

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.
