Does anyone else find it strange to see so many big launches from different brands so close to Photokina, instead of actually waiting for it? Would it be accurate to assume these brands will have even bigger surprises during Photokina?...after all they've managed to get our attentions big time.

So, it wouldn't surprise me to see:

- Another Nikon model, more complete than the D90.
- Another Panasonic micro four thirds more complete than the G1.

It would surprise me to see a new more complete camera from Canon, since the costs would be simply way too big to justify and it would not follow Canon's regular pattern of camera launches.

I'm very curious!

Not sure about your questions... I have no insight on that.

Is anybody going to Photokina?

"The photokina is the world's biggest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries. It is held in September every 2 years at the Cologne Trade Fair, Germany." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photokina)

All Germans are millionaires! We know you can afford it! Get down there with a SDHC card and shoot some video on a MKII!!

I would think so.

I am still getting a D90 and an 18-200mm VR (x2) for fun and excitement.
