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.

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.

I will be adding more information to the site after getting some sleep (it's nearly 5:00 AM).
