Well, people seem to love the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2 and I have always felt that Canon could use such a lens in its lineup (esp since so much of its sales come from crop cameras), so it is quite plausible that they have been playing with one.

If the one being introduced by Canon is just the consumer end then not having APS-C is perfectly fine as neither do any of the other entry level mirrorless cameras.
a bit of a dirty trick, kinda like how Canon quietly changes settings at low f stops to make the user think they are getting extra light... it is giving the user what they visually expect, sorta, but only because you are not giving them what they mechanically expect.
Would you explain this a bit more? It is new to me
If this rumor is true, It will be a disaster. It will have slow AF as the GX-1. It will have worst picture quality than the Rebel. It will be bigger than the GX-1, due to the lens is outside of the body. It will be more expensive than the GX-1. This camera is aiming at consumer. They will be better off either buying the Gx-1 or the Rebel. I just hope that this is really a rumor.
I'm sure its possible. As mentioned, Nikon cameras can do it and I'm sure Canon engineers are just as capable. With Nikon, If you mount a DX lens (similar to EF-S) the camera camera recognises this and works in "crop" mode. Its not ideal as you potentially lose a lot of megapixels. But otherwise, everything works fine.
* The only 5D3 strengths I see are "it can use my current Canon lenses" and "it has clean video". At anything else, the D800 wins, or it's a tie.
I'm not complaining that the 5D3 is not good enough. I'm complaining that its price is out of line with the D800: it should be clearly cheaper, not massively more expensive.
Once the DR technology is perfected, and high ISO noise is completely eliminated, and all cameras are 60 mega pixies... What excuse will all the spec-sheet-pixel-peepin-chart-reading-camera-testers complain about as the reason their photos aren't good enough? I'm so excited for these future point-and-shoots!
It's called using a DSLR people. No, DR will not be infinite and superb, on any DSLR camera.
I don't know why people are saying only landscape needs high dr - as soon as I'm shooting an animal with black & white fur or trying to raise the shadows I'm always wishing for more dr no matter what the scene is.
HDR is okay to do as long as you know what you're doing. I've seen some bad HDR photos, haha.
No doubt I'm wasting my breath, no-one has listened up to now about DR being only a small part of the whole. The photographer will make a much larger difference than any perceived deficiencies in a camera, whatever it may be.
Altho I still don't quite get it, I've never worn a suit to an interview, just a funeral.
And only out of respect for the occupant of the casket I helped carry. (still wore hiking boots for traction )
Sorry to be a buzz kill, but I simply do NOT get these types of questions at all. Is this an attempt to generate some sort of rambling controversy?
Studio resolution. What, on a computer screen, zoomed in ten times, is that what you mean? Or do you mean digital files converted to prints that a customer might hang on a wall?
I picked up a 800 at the trade show and I personally didn't like it that much. I don't know if it's the ergonomics or just the way it felt in my hands but definately not contoured like a Canon. It's like comparing a Xbox controller to a PS3 controller...I prefer the 360.
