Bob Atkins has published a Hebrew Canon banner on his site www.bobatkins.com. The banner reads: """This year August will be different - August 24th 2006 - Every legend has a beginning" Bob goes on to speculate about what this might mean - on this forum, folks are talking a bit about a new 1 series (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=220559). In that MR thread, there's even a link to a store accepting pre-orders for a 22 MP 1 series. Bob's write-up provides a bit of a current rumors round up (which is broader than a new 1 series - new low end, revised current bodies, etc.) and I thought folks might find it interesting. Here's the LINK: http://www.bobatkins.com/photography/digital/canon_fall_2006.html From the first part of the write-up: "Canon have been running a flash based banner advertisement on an Israeli website (in Hebrew...) which says something like ""This year August will be different - August 24th 2006 - Every legend has a beginning". So it seems that Canon think they have something important to announce and that they will do it on August 24th. In case you can read Hebrew, here's a static copy of the frames in the ad. "
