Congratulations. Your post is the very first I have seen regarding a pending an estimated time for a Canon DSLR camera announcement that has been backed up by research, logic, and sanity. Even if someone Canon doesn't announce a DSLR this week, it won't impugn the premise of your post, it would just mean an "off" year for Canon.

Re: 5DII Announcement Thursday??

If the announcement is so close, where are the (mandatory;) leaks?

Leaks? Canon is renowned precisely for lack of leaks time and time again.

I think people will be dissapointed

Rumor coming out of the dealers conference is that the 5D replacement won't come till right before Photokina and that another SLR plus several P&S will come on Aug. 26th.

August announcements in non-Photokina years?

As per the OP's info, both the 20D and the 400D were announced in August pre-Photokina.

... though the year the 20D was announced in August, they held out on announcing the 1DsII until September...

hmmm....

Re: August announcements in non-Photokina years?

well. I myself just bought the current 5D, used and with a battery grip... I have assignments coming up, my 20D wasn't cutting it.

I think I'll be quite all right with the 5D

I'll shut my eyes and ears to these rumors now. I believe a burden has been lifted from myself... haha

The other August announcements happened in odd-numbered years, true. But hey, I'm not guaranteeing an announcement this week. I'm just going from history. And there hasn't been a September announcement since 2004 (EOS 1DsII).

Re: 5DII Announcement Thursday??

A most optimistic thought: Maybe Canon will announce a lower cost 7D and a new(rumored) "S" series model before the show and save a 3D and G10(rumored) for the show? Along with assorted lenses and maybe printers.

According to this - 1D MK4 is due

According to the logic of the time cycles here, the 1D MK3 would have an announcement due in August of 2008 for an 18 month cycle to be followed. I would think besides the 5D, there may be another camera coming too!

Wow, you went to all that trouble to compile that list for a GUESS? Does the phrase "Get A Life" resonate? Sheesh.

Did you say, G10, with proper wide angle ability? Nice. I think they are also gonna annouce 1DsIV, 1DIV, 5DII, 50D, 500D and 2000D. Maybe not all this week though

Re: 5DII Announcement Thursday??

Of all 20 cameras in that list - 12 are NOT announced in August. That SURELY means they will announce the next one in August, right... or maybe not!

I'm amazed by the extent of "research" some people are willing to do, only to post another worthless speculation here.

I suppose asking you to wait 10 days, instead of posting another BS thread is too much...
