Thank you jrista for this detailled explanation! Will we ever come as close to such a great high ISO IQ as Sony demonstrates it, at the same or a similar price tag by Canon? I kinda doubt that, I guess they will ask another premium for that same thing... Sometimes I am pondering about purchasing a Sony A7s for the lowlight pics and keep with the 5D3 for the rest...
I don't know what to expect from Canon. A lot of people seem to be intrigued by small improvements here and there. The 7D II brings some big improvements to the AF system, which is wonderful...and I hope the iTR technology filters down to the rest of Canon's pro line (including the 6D). Beyond AF systems, though...Canon really likes to trickle out improvements, as slowly as possible, and at as high a cost as possible.
I certainly hope that come 2015, they will be releasing something fundamentally impressive with a layered sensor and low read noise, for a reasonable cost. What I expect is that Canon will release something that impresses a lot of people with a layered sensor, and high read noise. So long as Canon keeps using their off-die ADC units, I don't think we will see any improvement on the read noise front, and I think if Canon does that, it will diminish the benefits of having a layered sensor (i.e. they will have much of the same problems that Foveon has...which again boils down to high noise in the red channel and high read noise.)
It's my second addiction. It is a SOTA Millennia turntable, with a Triplanar VII arm and a Lyra Helicon pickup. Pass labs Xono, X1 and X600 amplifiers, Wadia 861 SE CD player and Martin Logan electrostatic speakers, all connected with Synergistic research cables. The sound is quite acceptableZeiss Distagon 35mm f1.4, 1DXNow, that is creamy and smooth! That doesn't look like a standard turntable and pickup; are you an audiophile, or you found this gear elsewhere?

The 1D was an APS-H body with an electronic shutter.I wonder why canon packed older cameras with some very useful features that are totally absent in modern cameras. Here I refer to the Canon EOS 1D released in 2001 vs modern professional canon cameras.
I refer strictly to:
1/16,000 shutter speed
X-sync speed 1/500
I would think its to do with it being APS, smaller, lighter shutter, less distance to travel etc. Not on modern pro APS now due to cost / usage considerations I would think.
Quick bit of research; also used CCD rather than CMOS which allowed the use of an electronic shutter. So as CMOS replaced CDD those features were lost.
