Don't look for one of these in my studio anytime soon. Of course, with availability expected to be early 2012, don't look for one of these anywhere other than a trade show for awhile.

Following is the list of the new Canon gear announced today. These links are to the review placeholder pages where product images, links to the Canon USA and Europe press releases and Amazon.com preorder links can be found.
 
Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens
Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
Canon Speedlite 270EX II
Canon Speedlite 320EX
Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens
 
What we get is a pair of more-advanced Rebel bodies (the T3i gets the Vari-Angle LCD), a tweaked kit lens, a formal announcement for the 500 II and 600 II lenses, a pair of flashes with some unique capabilities, and ... though it is not exactly the Canon EF 500mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens on my Canon Christmas list, the awesome-looking 200-400 f/4L IS with a built-in 1.4x does indeed get us there in a very unique way - and adds zoom. I did not include a Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS USM Lens on my list, but it is also one of my most-wanted lenses.
 
Here are direct press release links:
