The typical crop factor for other manufacturers APS-C cameras is 1.5x. No-one else uses 1.6x, so that suggests it can't be an off-the-shelf Sony 24 MP APS-C sensor.

I'm not going to buy a new DSLR from Canon (or Sony!) - regardless of how good the sample images are - until it's been tested and evaluated by DxO.
Explanation please? What is a low pass filter in this context? What is it for and if it's necessary, why build a camera without one? Is it the same as an anti-aliasing filter (another term I don't understand...)Yes, they are one and the same thing.
Look at all of the tests that websites such as dpreview do. Do they judge a camera's IQ by how well it focuses? Or do they judge it by how well a camera correctly captures and reproduces test patterns, colour charts, etc?
IQ is a property of the camera...
Yes, IQ is a property of the camera and lens.
Those tests to which you refer are judging the sensor, which is one of multiple components that contribute to the image quality of a camera.
IQ is a property of the sensor.
Of course you can keep your view but every camera reviewer out there on the Internet disagrees with you.
Quick, check out the leaked page before Canon UK notice and take it offline againLeaked page? If it was posted 12 years ago, then yes
I have tried this but it did not seem to be any better. Haven't used a cable release but I've set it to 10s delay before firing.The idea of using liveview AF and the cable release is you can invoke autofocus without physically touching the camera - this allows you to largely work around any stability issues with your tripod.
That's kind of weak for a superzoom, and not much on the wide end either, but if it has excellent IQ (especially at f2) then I guess it still has potential.Compared to the competition, it's class leading. There are currently two 1" sensored large zoom cameras out there.
I wouldn't bet on 36MP.
DxOMark gives some FF lenses (600mm mkII, 24-70mm mkII) as much as 13-14MP on the 70D. If the lens' corner IQ was as good as the center, they would produce a wee under 36MP on FF.
Also the back focus of just 3.26mm means its not even EF-S, as that has a 44.0mm flange distance and a mirror box to clear.
This appears to be an EF-M lens.
+1 I don't think it's a coincidence that this patent coincides with rumours of a new EOS-M.
kind of moronic because there's already an exceptional 11-22mm EF-M out there.
