I think Canon went with those lenses because they figure the primary still image buyer will be sports and studio/portrait photogs. Those are sports and studio lenses. You have to admit, that image of the soccer player in mid-air was pretty impressive.
And I was spec'ing out my next laptop yesterday. I'm thinking a 13" MacBook Pro i5 Quad-core with 16GB RAM. I'm sick of lugging the big 16" laptop I have and the new 13" MBP has a really impressive screen.
