Canon camera, lens and flash announcements

For DSLR users, Canon today announced two new cameras, two new flashes, three new (two previously pre-announced) lenses and a new lens in development:

Precisely how the "built-in extender" works in the 200-400mm zoom is a bit of a mystery to me. I mean, if it's really built-in, how does it technically "disappear" when turned off? Update: Okay, looking at above photo it seems there's room for a set of lenses to "flip out" on the side of the lens close to the rear. So the extender really physically seems to be taken out of the effective line of light when not in use. Sounds like a dream lens, but probably big, heavy and extremely expensive :-)

I addition to above, a number of new Canon compact cameras was also announced today.
