The C300's Little Brother Arrives

Canon this week fleshed out their EOS Cinema line with the announcement of the C100, what many people are dubbing the C300's little brother. The Canon cinema line now hits nearly every price point in the market. The C500 rumored to enter the market in October 2012 for around $30K, the C300 released Spring 2012 for $16K, and now the C100 rumored for release in November 2012 with an MSRP of $8K (I'm nearly positive it will street for less than this though).
