A new sensor! Oh no. What will people whine about now?
No worry, for some folks nothing Canon will ever do will be enough.
550D 600D 7D 60D 650D share the same sensor, and if the rurmors are valid, 700D and 100D will have 18mp too
where is the evolution on that?
Seems to me that Canon sells the old technology as new, sucking our pockets dry.. so no, its not enough for me!
Try to keep up, Megapixels aren't everything, in fact I hope Canon sticks to 18mp for APS-C. After seeing the "evolution" to image quality Sony and Toshiba did with 24mp APS-C sensors image if Canon could apply those advancements to an 18mp one.
18mp is a nice balance for resolution and diffraction limits (even though at this high resolution diffraction will be barely noticeable), but it's nice to know that every Canon lens isn't diffraction limited wide open (f/5.6 being the slowest stop without diffraction limitations) and I think we can start dreaming of better signal to noise ratios that rival 5D markII with a usable ISO 3200, better Dynamic Range and Cleaner video for Canon APS-C
I just hope Canon doesn't skimp on features like All-I and IPB video codecs, auto ISO limiters or AFMA.
