Canon used to be highly secretive.The only reason they now feel compelled to reveal their development plans must be the loss of customers to other camps.

CR quotes EG quotes NL quotes a google translation of the patent - now that's a [CR-1] for you :->
As Canon seems to be unwilling or unable to compete with Sony's high-res sensors, the way out might be further integration of video and stills. If Canon "mirrorless" settles for a 4k resolution sensor and enables high-quality frame grabbing @120fps, that would be a product meeting a high demand for a lot of purposes.
Can anyone tell me what differences there are with a 50mp medium format size sensor compared to a 50mp 35mm size sensor.
Whereas Canon currently makes it better for you if you've bought expensive (large aperture) lenses, Nikon's is more rewarding if you're using teleconverters with your lens or you're focusing in very low light situations (-3EV on the D750.)
Thank you for pointing outside of in certain select situations, such as sports and wildlife photography, there's no reason to buy Canon.
In that light, even the tiny gains, that Canon could achieve, are great.
Despite Bryan's commentary, I'm with AvTvM on this. To my eyes, the noise comparison page (link below) shows minimal difference from the 70D at any ISO and certainly less than a stop (maybe 0.5 stop?) against the 7D, which seems to me a disappointing return for five years' progress. Along with a 6D, I still have a 7D but there's not enough here for me to feel the need to upgrade it. YMMV.
Conclusion: confirmation of what was already known ... IQ improvement vs. 70D minimal and even vs. 7D quite disappointing. Too bad. Really great DSLR otherwise, everything there, except built-in WiFi.
Seriously, the new M is going to be a mirrorless beater because it will have some movie AF tweets?
