1Ds mkIII and13-52 f1.8

A qouote of one of the most unusual info that I found on FM forums:

One of the oldest Canon dealers in Mexico City hosted a Canon Day yesterday, I had a chance to spend quite a bit of time with a Technical guy and he indicated that -even though he couldn't confirm anything- the 1Ds Mk III was scheduled for an October 1st release and the prototype with the best chance of making it to production had a 22 MP sensor. He was not a sales rep, so I think there's a good chance he could be right.

I also saw, with my own eyes, a 13-52 mm f/1.8 Canon lens. Unfortunately it was not an EOS mount, but some sort of weird Video Capture camera that had a CCD sensor.
