Yes, it was only the EOS-1n that came out in '94..

Like you, I'm trying to fathom the significance of the '94 date and how the new announcement would correlate with the 1-n.

If Canon said this is the biggest deal since EOS came about, then
I'd be concerned.

I'm still confused as to why the EOS-1n is so significant. Wouldn't
the EOS-1 be a bigger deal, since it was the first 1-series SLR?

come to think of it, it is also true the the EOS-1 was also
introduced in early 1994 when the FD mount was dropped and the new
system came into being.
So, Steven, do you actually think what you mentioned in jest could
actually happen?
Say it isn't so!

Canon called our store today and invited our owners to stockholm on
the 5th of september, saying they were going to announce the
biggest news since 1994.

I have no idea what, but it's not the 20D and hopefully it was just
not to get our attention.... we'll see.

1Ds mark II???
