That's likely to be the 6x wide angle lens for the XLH1. It's already on Canon Japan's website.

The wide angle also snuck on to the Canon USA site:

No price info to be seen though...

Of course the Canon 6x has already been announced so all they would be telling us is the List price and actual features. Seems to me they should be announcing something else on Aug 2nd

Well, this should tell you how far lenses have come in terms of built in electronics. No longer just polished glass in a metal barrel.

A footnote from the Canon USA website concerning the 6X lens.

Thanks for the clarification - I will have to go back to the shop and talk to the guy again. He definitely said he couldn't get anymore as it was now discontinued.

Wouldn't really make sense for him to lose a sale if they were still available for him to buy.

I wonder if he just doesn't want to order a large batch of SD units in case the SD market bottoms out, and ordering one unit wouldn't offer him the discount he needs to turn a profit.

He would only keep one or two in stock normally.

Remember - this was before any announcement.

Anyway - doesn't matter anymore - the new cam is out :)
