CanonRumors PMA Prediction

Date: 2/13/2009
Source: CR

Rating: 1.3/5, Votes: 3

CR has issued a prediction for PMA 2009, based on the rumors that they have received. PMA starts in about 3 weeks at the beginning of March, although a release of something is expected next week on February 17th/18th.

According to CR, the Canon EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L II IS Lens is possible, but unlikely:
"EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L II IS - The Canon community wants this lens pretty badly. I just don't think it's coming. Kinda hope Im wrong. "

Again, this is their prediction based on rumors they have received.
