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/4 L 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/5.6 L IS USM Lens on my Canon Christmas list, the awesome-looking 200-400 f/4 L 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/4 L IS USM Lens on my list, but it is also one of my most-wanted lenses.
 
Here are direct press release links:

Canon Inc. has announced that it has successfully developed the World's Largest CMOS Sensor.
 
I'd hate to see the size of the lens required by this sensor and I would hate having to clean it, but the specs are very cool.

I have the review page placeholders for the new Canon EOS 60D and L Lenses on the site.
 
On these pages you will find pictures of the gear and links to the USA and UK press releases (if you have only read one, read the other).
 
Factory specifications are loaded into the Lens Specification Tool for the new L lenses (especially interesting is comparing the new lenses with the old)
 
Here are the links:

Press Release:
 
London, UK, 26th August 2010 – Canon today announces a new plug-in further enhancing quicker and easier editing of EOS MOVIE footage in Apple’s software suite, Final Cut Pro. The update will be available to download for free from mid-September.
 
EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.1 will add to the recently released Plug-in-E1 by providing support for the Canon EOS 60D, the latest addition to the EOS range. The plug-in will allow users to view metadata and EXIF data for movie files. It will also provide support for multi-core processing, allowing even faster conversations with the latest generation of Macs.
 
The original plug-in was designed to convert EOS MOVIE footage from Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR cameras to Apple’s high-quality ProRes 422 codec at approximately twice the speed of Apple’s standard conversion. Users will still have the benefits of being able to add timecode and reel names to footage quickly and easily.
 
For more information and to download, visit Canon Europe's EOS Movie Plug-in-E1 for Final Cut Pro version 1.1 page.
