Canon's mid-range digital SLR announcement expected soon?

UK photographer Neil Turner indicates that the Canon digital SLR shown under glass at the PMA trade show in February may be officially introduced later this month:
Just been to a Canon UK roadshow where the staff were letting anyone who'd listen know that the new middle market digital SLR (seen by you at PMA) will be officially announced worldwide on May 17th. They weren't giving details but were anxious to position it against the D1 in spec and price terms. They hinted at £2750 (US$4230) as a basic price and 3 megapixels in the chip, but knew nothing about buffer memory size, media slots or drive speeds (you know, stuff that matters).
