    Many people felt, before the "N" series" that having the extra letter
    "E" in the name of the camera was unneeded extravagance. Obviously they
    are wrong as Canon have kept the extavagant "E" in the "N" series of the
    camera.

  3. Check Canon's site for announced new products. These new cameras are
    supposed to have improved AF performance among other things.

    The E is for eye control

    Still no dedicated (red or IR) AF assist lamp.
    Still no backlighted LCD. Still no bonafide spotmetering.
    If Konica Minolta weren't such a loser company with crappy corporate logo,
    the Maxxum/Dynax 7 would be a clearly better choice.

    Anyone know whether the newly announced Canon EF lenses are optical
    giants or midgets? (The "EF 400mm F4 DO" left some buyers saying
    "DOH!")

    Nope, there is a lit LCD now. I don't have one on my 7e/30, although I
    got one on the 600, never understood why they didn't add this feature
    right from the beginning.

    Thanks for the correction! I wonder if this is a Europe-only feature?
    I'm fairly certain I recall reading the LCD still wasn't backlighted.
    Perhaps a mistake in the press release re-hash...

    Damn, I almost thought it's an Europe-only, feature, too. But then I
    realized that from one point of their homepage, Canon USA still links
    to the old 7/7E site. The backlit display is mentioned on the real
    7N/7NE specification site in the section "Other":
    http://www.canoneos.com/elan7n/specs.html

    However, the lit display is really just the smallest treat. I'd prefer
    the other 2 things you mentioned (spotmetering and near IR AF assist
    lamp). The EOS 50/Elan II had at least the AF assist lamp. And now
    there's this IMHO useless white floodlight thingy instead.
