The other more sanely priced L lens is the 70-300mm f4-5.6L. Canon already has several lenses in this focal length. The original 75-300mm IS, updated 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS, and the 70-300mm f4-5.6 DO, not to mention the non-IS version of the 75-300mm f4-5.6. Looks like Canon love this focal length. Looking at the MTF, the 70-300mm L looks to be very sharp.
Both of these lenses appeal to me, but they are still very expensive.
Many are disappointed at the 60D announcement. It's a downgrade from the 50D, in terms of built quality and feature set. Personally, I won't buy the 60D, if it uses the same sensor as the T2i/7D, but many will find it attractive, especially those using it for video. It has the nice swivel 3" 1 MP LCD which will make doing video so much easier. I am waiting for the 5D II, but hopefully Canon won't screw it up with another high density sensor with muddy low ISO images. I think by the time I save enough money for one, it will be couple years later and I am sure the 5D III will be out by then.
