QuoteWhy on earth would Canon give up on sensor production and use Sony ? It's clear to me that the 24mpx sensor will be the new baseline, used in the 750D, 750D, M3 & probably the replacement to the SL1 & 1200D.
What's less clear is where the 80D will fit, I'd now expect a cut price 7DII using the same 20mpx sensor.
1200D 24 MegaPixels
750D 24 MegaPixels
760D 24 MegaPixels
80D 20 MegaPixels
7D MkII 20 MegaPixels
That doesn't look tempting to potential upgraders, i'm thinking 24MP+ across the range.
It'll be many years before we see a 7Dmkiii. My guess is that most 7Dmkii owners would have preferred a 24mp sensor with greater DR at base ISO vs the 20mp sensor with dual-pixel AF.
