This does not make sense to me.
Canon has just put out the 7D2 sensor, which scaled down to FF gives the 53-56MP wanted.
If Canon wanted to put a Sony Sensor on the High MP FF it would put a cut version (same pixel size) on he 7D2.
Or else the 7D2 would be outdated very soon. Canon waited 5 years to update the 7D. If such a major move was about to happen, they would not leave the 7D in the cold, they could wait some more months.
A FF scaled version of ths 7D2 sensor makes all the sense in this timing, a few months after, to allow better yelds of the larger version.
It seems like both Canon and Nikon want to push FF over crop to consumers. Nikon creates D750 instead of 7Dii direct competitor and Canon may be keeping older sensor tech just for APS-C. Both seem to be emphasizing FF more than ever.
