Where would the new sensor come from? Canon would not make one just for this 1100 camera.

About lenses and sensors.
What I understand from this is that in daily practice shooting at f8, f11, a sensor like the one as in the 5Dm2 starts to out resolve lenses.
60d - best UK price i can see is approx Â£700 (around $1090)
7d - best Uk price approx Â£900 (around $1400)
5dmkII - best price approx Â£1400 (around $2180)
Did you see that 46 MP foveon X3 sensor on the new Sigma? Talking about resolution on APS-C size! And the 150 macro with OS. I just bought the one without .Yeah, love it, but divide by 3 (15.3 Mpixel), as a normal pixel site has RGB in one pixel.
I want Canon to release 3D body (fullframe 7D body).Why a 3D - and not a 5D mk3
If not, maybe I and other people can switch to Nikon.
There is no affordable FF body for sports and action photography! That's shame!
Your right if we are talking about Bigger Pixel site areas!A bigger sensor to archieve what? Same resulotion but better S/R and sensitiity or Higher resolution at same level of S/R and sensitivity? What does this tell us: 'we' hit the limits within the 36x24mm sensor size, 'we' cant no longer improve on one aspect without substantially sacrificing other aspects of the sensor?
I'm starting to repeat myself, but SNR is mostly dependent on sensor surface area. So a physically larger sensor would mean better SNR regardless of its resolution.
And if you can't reduce noise significantly (because technology is at its limits) the only thing you can do is enlarging the signal (equals to "more light" equals to "larger sensor").
My bet is a square 36x36mm sensor. Square full frame .................(while maintaining full EF lens compatibility)the 24-105mm lens has a rectangular rear section, so this lens would not be suitable for a 36x36mm sensor.
