Neuroanatomist, Thanks again. So far you have given the most complete REAL experience and insight on microadjustment in this forum. Thanks

I don't think so.
It's better to increase pixel density and scale down afterwards. Remember, Bayer pattern sensor do deliver more details than a Foveon sensor with 1/4th pixel count.
Missed this up to now, a quote from this page:QuoteThe Canon rep we spoke with claims they've narrowed the space between the micro lenses on the 60D's image sensor to create "gapless microlenses" which absorb more light and help reduce noise. While we can't give a verdict on image quality since it was a pre-production camera we were testing, we can say the 60D fared a lot better than expected at ISO 1600-3200. (See some examples of images we shot on the next page.)
I just called the journalist at heise. He told me, the info about the 60D-sensor came out of a conversation with the canon-product manager.Thanks, I hope it is true. However, I feel a little bit strange about it. Why Canon will reengineering the 7D sensor to use on a lower body and ends up wityh a better picture than the 7D?? It will take away the sales from the 7D. Unless Canon is using 60D as a beta test site. So I agree with you that we should wait and see a comparision test between the 60D and the 7D.
He said he was told, that the 60D uses a reengineered 7D Sensor to achieve a better ISO-noise-ratio, but nothing concrete about how it works.
so I guess we'll have to wait for some compareable sample-pics to see what they did at canon.
Are ANY of the posters above, who are complaining about the lack of MA on the 60D, both in the market for the 60D and currently utilising MA in their current camera or in need of MA because they are experiencing focus accuracy problems with their current camera?I have a slight back focusing problem with my 20D (i cannot do anything about it due to lack of MA). I do not have problem with my 40D. I am in the market for a new camera. 60D seems a perfect fit for my usage and it is a better value, compared to T2i. I would like to see MA in it just in case.
i.e. are you actually experiencing a problem?
I have read in a couple of places that the 60D uses the same low pass filter as the 7D, so maybe the "slightly re-engineered" quote is with respect to the 550D? We'll find out in the detailed reviews...The CMOS sensor of 7D is of 8 channel readout while the 60D is of 4 channel readout. Therefore the circuitry part of both sensors are not identical.
No, I won't buy a 60D and probably not a 7D. My 40D suits me well. I don't have to make a living with the camera, so I don't need the latest technology.I am in the same situation as you. I am trying to hang on my 40D as long as I can. I have check the focus matching of my 17-40 with the 40D, It is a perfect match. Also the 35-135 is the same perfect match. So I do not need the Micro adjustment yet.
Maybe one day, when the 5dIII is out and the price of the 5dII is to my liking, I will buy a second hand 5dII and a wide angle for my landscape shooting, but only when I feel that I improved enough to deserve the quality of the 5dII .
Don't you think that Canon would have given that info when they announced it?
By the way, the 6400 ISO images of the 60D on dpreview are not bad at all in my opinion. Not that I will buy one .
I'm new to post here (even thought I do read for a while now).
Which email address are you sending at your "suggestion/request/question"?
It's tough to find any address on website (or I might be too stupid to find it ).
Thanks in advance,
