RF lenses to be announced in late Feb
From what I heard, some retailers in the Netherlands are invited for an event organized by Canon on Februray 25, where the new camera will be introduced, but there is a possibility that the camera will be available even sooner (15 or 16 february), basically the same day when the new discount program (cashbacks) starts. Even the RF will have a discount, 200 euros cashback, or 400 euros towards a lens bought with it (specific lenses only).

HTH, kind regards, Wim

Canon showing quite some might with announcing 5 new lenses so quickly again.
It could well be a photo / image compression feature, where the image is shortened width wise. It has happened before with images like these. I reckon it will be a similar size to the current 70-200 F/2.8s for dslrs, and possibly even a bit longer.
