If what we posted turns out not to be true, it will be the greatest hoax of specs that I have seen in the 6 years we’ve been around.
But it could still be 20.2 and be a new improved sensor (not identical), what you've posted still true and for you not to have been hoaxed though, no?
I remember voices from past Canon Rumors claiming different prototypes were around, couldn't it be the leaked specs are a mix of several different "experiments"?...
The good news is that if it is a totally new sensor, it may be much better than the 70d and it will have better high ISO noise at 20.2 than 24 mp. Im all for a smaller sensor in aps-c. Truthfully, I wish it was closer to 12 or 16. We'd have a killer crop camera!
Partly agreed. As I said in Don Haines' poll thread, either a low res/good high ISO IQ old tech sensor, or a high res/supposedly better high ISO IQ new tech sensor would do for me. I put better high ISO IQ than the 7D on top of the specs in order of importance, otherwise to me it's 70D or 80D.
