These rumored specs don't impress me much

New process 36 MP sensor
5D mkiii body and controls
+1. Seriously, some guy just said "very rarely do people shoot in high iso"....are you kidding me?
Because if you step outside of the mass, you expose yourself too much and take the whole stagelight for yourself, which is considered as impolite...and Canon are a japanese enterprise...so much more lowprofile acting is requiered. Anybody out there to confirm my humble assumptions, please?
Nikon suffered from that until some younger blood finally got to the top. The trouble is, they also need to make a profit. Innovative ideas do not keep a company in business if they don't turn a profit.
Nikon is building a giant plant in Laos to open this fall, apparently hoping to ultimately get their costs down. They also (I think) understand that the warmer weather means more floods and they need to have plan(t) B. I hope it works out for them, lower prices are certainly welcome, and Canon is in the drivers seat right now as far as cost of production is concerned. They drop prices and still make a nice profit.
If the MP count has not changed then the underlying technology behind the pixels/sensor has not changed. i.e. there will be no DR/noise improvements over the 60D.
well as you may noticed the 650D had a NEW sensor too.
now how well does that worked out?
worse DXO mark then the 550D sensor and the hybrid focus not worth much.
i will be excited when i see the results of this "new" sensor justify it.
Yes, the sensor is important. No, Canon doesn't make the best sensors from an IQ standpoint. But until consumers start buying bare silicon sensors to take pictures, what matters is camera performance, not only sensor performance.
no not true, the canon full frame sensors are great and have been for ages, 5Dmk3, 1Dx and 6D all do well with regards to noise
how about 39 point AF including 9 cross type on the D5200 vs wait for it 9! on the canon
That D5200 has an amazing Toshiba APS-C sensor; with excellent Signal to Noise ratios, Dynamic Range and Low Video Moire.
My only question is why didn't they just make the EOS-B the new rebel?
The EOS-B has very similar specs to this and is a smaller size. At least if the EOS-B was the new rebel they could say that they changed something and made it smaller, lighter, but with even better performance.
This camera seems to be stuck in no mans land.... not so small, not so cheap, and with totally blah specs. At least I could consider trading my T2i for the EOS-B(which I would never do), this camera offers no good reasons to do so.
