With the leak there’s the unofficial Canon announcements for Photokina from Digicame-info. We’ll have Scott in Germany next month for the show so expect to hear more soon. We’ve still got rumors of that 24MP full-frame mirrorless from Canon but it’s still missing at this point. Coming with the new 5d is a refresh of the 24-105mm and 16-35mm lenses possibly with the new nano USM design.
