Canon made some non-Camera announcements yesterday. I'll send you directly to the Canon USA press releases for the details:

I have a current model Canon X Mark I Premium Black Desktop Calculator - it looks great on my black back-painted glass desktop. The new models would replace my wireless keypad as well. Very nice.
 
Sorry for being a day late on these announcements. I arrived home at 1:00 AM this morning after three days on the road. I'm behind on email replies as well - please be patient - I'll be responding soon.

Canon CA has moved the EOS 1Ds Mark III to the archives (thanks Edward).
 
This seems like an unusual move - unless a replacement model is soon to be announced. I already suspected that a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark IV announcement was coming soon - this occurrence feeds my guess. Perhaps an August announcement?

As with any new operating system release, software compatibility must be considered.
 
The first compatibility consideration for Canon DSLR owners is that Canon EOS Utility reportedly does not work under Mac OS X Lion.
 
Update: Canon EOS Utility 2.8.1 is compatible, but the next two versions are not (thanks Vas).
 
Nikon has issued the following statement regarding Mac OS X version 10.7 Lion Compatibility (note that "plan to test" does not mean "currently functions properly"):
 
We plan to test the Macintosh versions of the following software applications for compatibility with Mac OS X version 10.7 (some older applications will not be tested). We will announce our plans regarding full compatibility once testing is complete.
 
- Capture NX 2
- ViewNX 2
- Camera Control Pro 2
- WT-4 Setup Utility/Thumbnail Selector
- nik Color Efex Pro 3.0
- PC-PJ Transfer
 
We do not intend to provide compatibility with the following applications.
 
- Capture NX Ver. 1.x
- Camera Control Pro Ver. 1.x
- Nikon Capture series
- ViewNX Ver. 1.x
- Nikon Transfer Ver. 1.x
- PictureProject
- Nikon View series
- Nikon Scan series
- PictureProject COOLPIX Remote Control
- WT-3 Setup Utility
- Wireless Camera Setup Utility
- Wireless Connecting Utility
- nik Color Efex Pro 2.0
 
In addition, we do not plan to provide compatibility for other software, or SCSI- or serial-connection products. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause
 
Thanks John
