Adding to Mathias' story...

Mathias may not be wrong after all...
Here's my story to add to the rumours (also from Sweden);

I put in an order on a 1D Mark II about a week ago. Today the dealer called me up and asked if I would mind waiting with my order to mid-October. By then, he said, a new model would be available (an 'upgraded' MkII as he put it), combining specs from 1D MkII and 1Ds, i.e. full frame. What's more, the new "1Ds MkII" would be priced as the recent MkII!

So, both a new line of cameras AND a new pricing strategy?! Sounds almost too good to be true, but perhaps Santa comes early this year? I sure hope 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???
