Canon is holding two events on the 18th of October, one a CPS (Canon Professional Services) event in the Netherlands and the other one in Singapore where the invite only reads: Photography. Elevated by Canon EOS and a picture of a Canon EOS-1 camera with the bottom obscured (where the model number is).
Canon is expected to release a new pro-model DSLR camera, more specifically an amalgamation of the 1D/1Ds lines.
The most rumoured specs are: -Full Frame -18 Megapixels -12 fps -61 AF points -New battery (backwards compatibility expected)
The rumoured date of availability is around March 2012, then again I don't really know if this would include Dubai and the rest of the U.A.E.
