I hope the MP monster has better IQ than the 7D aka 18MP crops, that would be disapointing to say the least
hopefully they have refined the tech in recent years to get better sharpness out of them maybe removing the AA filter like the D800E. fingers crossed.
18MP Canon APS-C = 46MP FF (18 x 1.6^2) so we have One (1) entire MP to spare
AND the sensor technology must
have advanced enough in the past 3 years to make the ISO performance a bit better!
What I find suspicious is the "With a pixel size similar to the power shot G1X" comment in the rumor. Shouldn't it be like the 7D in pixel size?
