Just wondering - what if Canon shocked us all and came out with a new sensor that was a new format - a 1.5 or 1.4 APS-C? I know Nikons are already a 1.5x. Is it possible to make the sensor any bigger and still maintain the necessary mirror distance to keep compatibility with EF-S lenses? That would be interesting.

Given that they ditched a well selling 1.3 (APS-H), I can't see them inventing a new crop sensor.

What I find remarkable about the commentary here is the self entitlement that some people seem to have.

But what the CEO is saying is smart and sensible. He sounds like someone that knows what is going on.

He can quite clearly see a future in which it is no longer sensible to be producing DSLRs with APS-C sensors because the IQ/feature difference between them and cameras like the EOS-M range is not significant enough to support the more expensive models.

Which customer will this make happy?

Yeah, I saw that too.

Pretty f'ing amazing if it delivers what I think it will.

Canon: Y U NO GIVE 7D MK II???  ;D

Actually, I am expecting it in a while, but still...  ;D
The recent interview with Canon by DC Watch at CES indicated that they did not want to issue a 7D MK II that was just a feature upgrade, but wanted substantial improvements (Thats how I read the translation).  Apparently, its not yet ready.

Sure... and there is a pig flying past my window right now too.

All that Canon does is produce minor updates.

Remember everyone that DxO reviews are useless and biased towards Nikon.

So DxO saying the 24-70/2.8L II is great means nothing.

I wonder what Nikon's roadmap is and how their competitive launch will compare to Canon's...

2) Canon is aware that high iso, high motion doesn’t mix well with 4K aggressively compressed to MJPEG. So my little experience of doing 4K framegrab is mixed. Quality is amazing in natural daylight portrait, but is less interesting in action high iso scene. They are aware of that and the “limit is the card writting speed” at 100Mb/s.

Interestingly the buffer looks to be well over 380 Mb/s and almost 3Gb large. So basically, the camera could run small sequence with lower compression in 4K or even in 8K for 3 to 6 second on the buffer, and then move that to the card when done a little bit ala phantom.

Typically "Mb" = Megabits and "MB" = MegaBytes.

Is the Canonrumors person really trying to tell us that the 1DC can't write at more than about 12 megabytes per second? (100/8 =~ 12. This is awfully slow.)

However, I do particularly enjoy all the people who swear the won't buy a 70D unless it has the same sensor as a 7DII. I'm sure Canon would be quaking in their boots for fear that all those people who want to buy a 70D would have to buy a 7DII instead.

Some part of me actually wonders if some rumors are actually deliberately leaked by Canon as part of a stealth market research plan.

This makes a lot of sense as I think the APS-C segment needs a jolt and not more of the same.

Huh?

APS-C segment needs a jolt yet happy with the 70D being more of the same?
Is anyone thinking about what they write on the front page of CR?

I believe they are talking about the 7DII as the jolt in the APS-C market, not the 70D.

And that is the problem!

The image sensor may remain at 18mp as Canon separates the 7D Mark II with a new, higher performing APS-C sensor.

Queue reviews of it where people say "Just the 60D, warmed up with WiFi. Nothing important here, move along."

What's the point of releasing a 70D if it is just going to have the same sensor?

. . .  And my Sigma needed 0 AFMA

Who has had to use AFMA on Canon 85mm f/1.8,  Sigma 85 f/1.4, or 100mm f/2?

I had to use AFMA on all of my Canon lenses that were not calibrated by Canon for my Canon camera.

I wonder how much of what you've observed is due to the influence of the AA filter.
