I think the D800 has Q.E. of over 55%, which is one of the best on the market.

See this thread:

This guy uses the raw sensor data from DxO (remember, they're worthless!) to create some different measurements:

ModelQEMin Read Noise (e-)Max Saturation capacity (e-)
5D2333.264600
5D3492.467531
D800562.644972

This table also makes the 60D better than the 50D and 7D.

I just re-read the posting and it says...

"Both comments mention an announcement sooner than later."

Canon has been big on announcements this year and low on delivery. Remember the 1DC and C500 announcements? Well they're not even products yet and they were months ago.

And then there's the 24-70 MkII which was announced and... does anyone have it yet?

So even if Canon did announce it tomorrow, it would be March 2013 before there were any rumors of it actually being in stores.

Now the D800 exists so that is now the yard stick by which every other DSLR of that form factor will be measured when it comes to IQ.



I find it strange that one of Nikons biggest fanboys says  "The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is the world's best digital SLR. It easily lets us create smooth, clean, beautiful and colorful images in any sort of light."-Ken Rockwell

He isn't a Nikon Fanboy, he just writes whatever will get people to visit his website and paste his urls on other websites for people to click on.

True, Im not denying that. But D800 was announced on 7th of February and 5D Mk III month later. What Im trying to say is that 5D Mk III development could have ended months before D800 announcement so no possibility to respond.

I think both cameras were finished in terms of hardware design at least 6 months before they were released, possibly longer. That is to say that Canon was committed to the 5D Mark III in its current form from probably a year ago now.

I think that Canon is aware of DR/high MPx problem

High MPx, yes. DR problem, I wouldn't be so sure of that Canon recognising that problem if I were you.

If the leaked image of the D600 LCD panel is anything to go by then it will have DPS, 51 point focus,  WiFi support and HDR.

How many of those features will be in the next FF Canon DSLR?

as far as I can remember, complanis about 5D Mk II were mainly in regard of its AF and maybe slow burst rate - nothing about not enough reoslution and dynamic range - so Canon responded to complains upgraded AF to best and gived us 6 fps and all-in-all better all-around camera

That was before the D800 existed.

Now the D800 exists so that is now the yard stick by which every other DSLR of that form factor will be measured when it comes to IQ.

The D800 ushered in a new era of DSLR with its sensor just as the 10D with its price and the 5DMarkII did with HD video.

If Canon's high MP camera doesn't deliver in the IQ department (Dynamic range, read noise, no bandning, e.t.c) they won't get my money.

Not to be a pessimist, but I think it will be 3 - 4 more years before Canon can produce a sensor like the one in the D800.

I am more optimistic - in 2007 Canon produced the 1DS3 whose sensor delivered performance than only now has Nikon been able to surpass - and then in not all areas

If Canon could produce such a sensor 5 years ago then I can see no reason why they cant do it again

Yes, you've got to wonder where Canon's sensor development is going because it seems like the answer is "nowhere".

If it surpasses or just evenly matches the D800 in RAW IQ. Alot of 5d3 users will be quite angry at canon. (Me Included)

Why?

You bought the best Canon camera that satisfied your needs and budget that was available at that point in time.

Seriously, people who think like this about digital cameras need a reality check.

Ok. more megapixels. That was always going to happen.

But will the sensor be any better?
Will it still have vertical banding up the wazoo in dark areas?
Will the read noise be the same?
Will the dynamic response be about the same?

What was so good about the D800 wasn't just the increase in number of pixels but the quality of those pixels.

Page 4 with the interview with the Head of Imaging Resources at Nokia is very enlightening.

EOS Bodies / Re: New, cheaper, Canon FF DSLR... 70D?
« on: July 26, 2012, 06:14:44 AM »

I agree with you. New xxD series aka 70D could look like this:

  • sensor - same as 650D with fancy new video autofocus
...
[/list]

18MP isn't enough MP for a 70D unless it is FF and then only "maybe".

People that are shopping at that price point need and want more MP.
