EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 650D Results on DxOMark
« on: October 08, 2012, 07:38:40 AM »
Although I'm not a potential 650D user, I still care about its performance because it shows a trend in Canon’s dslr development. It shows a company which have fallen so much behind recently, and apparently doesn’t do much to catch up. Choosing to go backwards in dynamic range from 600D to 650D is just a mystery to me.

I ‘m still heavily invested into the Canon dslr system, but one may worry if Canon’s  “laissez faire” attitude to sensor technology , may devaluate second hand values of Canon lenses and other equipment.

The usual Canon sensor... I don't believe they woke up yet in the sensor department.
But it would be refreshing and give hope to FF users if they did!

Just wild guessing...

What if the following will be announced in August:

Perhaps a 6D will be a sort of updated 7D with an APS-H sensor
This could fill the gap from the 1D mkIV if that is retired.
(Why would Canon make an upgrade of 5D mkII and give it a less prestigious model number)

Then the 1D line could fusion into a new 1Ds fullframe.

This way there would be space in the model numbers for an upgraded 5D mkII next year.

I personally would not want a APS-H camera, and I actually thought the APS-H sensor size was to be retired until seeing this 6D indication. Actually I am quite confused with the 6D model number.
