Here's what Canon officially told me

I attended a press-only event in New York last night (Sept. 20).

In my hands, I am holding a CD-ROM titled "Canon Holiday Season 2006; Canon Press Information." It has the names of Canon's PR contacts, which, alas, I cannot share. No new press releases are on this disc. The newest are the XTi/400D, 70-200 F4 IS, and 50mm F1.2.

The XTi/400D, 70-200 F4 IS, and 50mm F1.2 products were all available for us to use, as were the new point-and-shoot models.

I was told that the CD contains ALL of Canon's Fall 2006 announcements. Furthermore, they told me that that I could save my money and not bother going to Photokina, because I won't see anything else new from Canon.

These PR people certainly have no reason to steer me wrong. But they might be. But then again, they might not.

I'm merely reporting to you what I saw and what I was told by Canon USA's internal PR department.
When I ask which Canon lenses are best,
people tell me to 'go to L.'
