A 17-55mm with IS just doesn't make marketing sense to me, so maybe the poster made a typo (if it's not just a unfounded rumor anyway).

Although, Panasonic has some new subcompacts with IS, so I guess anything is possible. Although, with the noise levels if you increase ISO speeds withsome of these sensors (in the newer subcompacts), IS may not be a bad idea for them.

But, I just can't seea big need for ISin a17-55mm from Canon (but I guess we'll just have to wait and see if it's just pure rumor or not).

The other rumor going around is that Canon will be introducing a 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, but nobody's mentioned whether will be EF or EF-S.

Me too. I hear the BG-ED3 isn't going to be compatible.

Quick, someone sell me theirs for $30...

In all seriousness. A 17-85 f4-5.6? C'mon, who does Canon think they are fooling here? Looks right down the alley with their dog 28-105 f4-5.6 lens. Image Stabilization does nothing for you if the glass isn't up to the task. If this was a lens for serious work they would have made it an EF lens. Ditto with this 10mm to whatever zoom. That is, after all, a missing link as far as focal lengths in the regular lineup. Now they introduce one, but someone with $4,000 or more tied up in a 1D series can't even use it?


All in all, makes me glad I went ahead and bought the 10D two weeks ago.

If it's on Canon's site, it must be real

The real question is: how much? I'm waiting on this camera before I buy anything. It'll be a win-win situation. It will have to drive the current Canon dSLRs (excluding the 1 series, of course) down in price at least a little (particularly on the used market).

That should tell us the image sensor size is not going to be any larger than what the DRebel used today...

IS is a selling "feature" regardless of if one needs it or not, after all the competition will have it in all their lenses if it's built in to the body. Beside it'll make an interesting "kit" price that other manufacturers will have a tough time beating.

IMO it's clearly aimed at the D70

This 17-85 is an EF-s version of the EF 28-135 IS USM! "Brilliant" :idea:
This will solve all the problems with the smaller sensor at the wide and everyone will be happy with their long lenses benefiting from the cropping factor!

The next DRebel/300D should be interesting...
