Sorry, must be the heat. Send rain, please!

Are they selling the camera body only, without the 20X lens? If so, the camera and this new lens would be one of the best things on the market. The 24mm-147mm range (in 35mm terms) is about as perfect as I could ever want.

greg, yer a nut! i'm thinking that with the all-72mm lens mount fleet of cameras that i'm on the verge of owning, that the camkote will get its well-deserved workout. ski season is right around the bend in these parts...and there's that trip to hawaii which has been on my mind, i could use some sand and salt protection...

heh. i've been inches away from that tempting HD100, too, actually. i would lie awake at night pondering my next HDV camera question. saved at the bell by the always-late-to-the-party-but-never-disappointing minions at canon.

here's a good one. i'm madly trading canon stock to pay for the next canon cameras. so far i'm $3000 closer to my purchase. only $10K away from my babies. run, canon, run.

That's a good one. If you're waiting for the body only, does that mean you're not on the waiting list for the XH? I figured that might be your next move.

my current plan is to get one of each of the new cousins. but if canon were to offer a body-only H1, i might have to re-think it....

$8,000 (XL H1+20x lens)+3,000 (6x lens)+3,000 (accessories?)=$14,000.

i'd hate to see all those get stolen at a moment's notice =\.

Thread mount

Does anyone know which thread mount the 6x zoom will have?

Sorry, maybe I was indistinct.

It's an XL lens, but at the other end... is it a 72mm filter thread mount?
