New Canon DSLR and Powershot camera announcements (executive summary)

The leaks became a lake today, and the rather surprising at first new Canon DSLR, lens and Powershots have come a reality. Detailed coverage coming up!

Canon 50D DSLR: 15mp CMOS APS-C sensor, DiGIC 4, 3" LCD, Live View, ISO 12800 max, HDMI out. Lots more details...

Canon 18-200 f3.5-5.6 IS EF-S lens: The 50D and all over EF-S/APS-C Canon DSLRs have a new best friend. This $700 new lens can give them the "house brand" superzoom lens they always wanted. More details...

Canon SX110-IS: A new "fun zoom" follow-up to the SX100-IS, with a 10X IS lens, 9-megapixels, and things like that. More Details...

Canon A2000-IS and A1000-IS: Canon reboots their A-series naming scheme, with the A2000-IS following up the A720-IS with a 6X IS lens, and the A1000-IS following up on the A590-IS with a 4x IS lens. Both are using the 10mp 1/2.33" sensor. More details...

Welcome to the entry-level: Canon embraces the entry-level with the new elegant (NOT) E-series line, starting with the E1. Perhaps taking a shot at the Olympus E1 with this name? :) The E1 is sort of like a continuation of the A4xx-series which was a more basic A-series model. More details...

New Canon G10 or NOT?: One of our readers just noticed a summary-announcement at Pop Photo. However, as of 10:20am New York City time on Tuesday August 26, clicking on the link takes you to the main Pop Photo page instead of the G10 page. [UPDATED!] Less details...

Three more Canon Powershots coming? It looks like Canon is not done yet! There may be three more Powershots coming, two Elphs models (Ixus, Ixy) and another SX-series model. We don't have enough information to post more on this yet... SX1 IS 20x superzoom?

Thanks Mark for the heads-up!

I removed the comment because it contained the whole text of the Pop Photo article and we do not support that practice, especially since we are getting slogged and scraped left and right.

Again, thanks for the heads up!

sry - Feedreader showed me the post without the added comment...

No problem. The feedreaders are not updated in real-time, so they don't usually catch the in-progress updates right away.
