    I want a TS so bad, but have such little practical use for it. No way I could drop $1500 on one

    The 17 TS-E makes me so fucking hard. Too bad I'd only use it about once a year. :wtc:

    Canon also announced an absolute fuckton of Point & Shoot cameras today too, including one that shoots 720i video. :cool:

    Prices I've found so far are:

    TS-E 17mm €2499
    TS-E 24mm €2299

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Fuck that shit. These are probably going to street at at around $1750.

    Canon lenses are getting decidedly more expensive lately. We are getting absolutely PWNT by forex rates. :wtc:

    That TS-E 17mm looks ridiculous. Scaled to FF with a 12mm shift, it's a ~10.9 mm rectilinear lens :eek3:

    Too bad about the $2500 price

    "Not to be outdone by Sony, Samsung, or FujiFilm, Canon has unveiled nearly a dozen digital cameras bound for the US ahead of March's PMA. Of the ten, the big guy is that 10 megapixel SX1 IS we originally heard about last September, which sports 1080p Full HD movie mode and a built-in HDMI connector. Not too far off is the SX200, SD970 and the already-leaked SD960 / SD780, which all record 720p and also feature HDMI ports. The more rugged D10 boasts it's freeze proof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, shockproof up to four feet, and can withstand depths up to 33 feet deep. As for the rest, well, they've certainly got more appealing price tags. Full rundown of the specs after the break." -engadget

    what do you mean by that? it's a 17mm lens no matter what your sensor size is :noes:

    Well, it's kinda cheating, but if you shift to the left, take a picture, shift to the right, take a picture, and stitch the two together you effectively have a 11mm FF shot.

    Yes, I realize you can do this with a pano tripod head, but pretty cool nonetheless.

    Ah. I didn't see a full press release on the SX1IS since it's technically not a new camera. The release was just that it's coming to the US. :dunno:

    Define "fast". Fast on a P&S is usually in the f/3.2-5.8 range.

    Yeah, if the price was right I'd consider it. I really really want something affordable that will do both printable stills and HD video since I have been doing a lot more video/audio interviewing. 60D with video and external mic input :x:
