Quite interesting! I think the next generation crop cameras, with the 7DII as the first to be released are gonna have an entire new generation sensors. I dont think Canon dare to release a pro crop camera with the worn out 18mp sensor. That is why it is taking so long.Some people think that all 18 mp sensors are the same, even though they obviously are not. If Nikon uses a 18mp semsor, will it be a old worn out Canon sensor? What about the Nikon D4, its 16mp, must be a old worn out sensor from the Canon 1DS MK II?
I am obviously talking about Canon sensors, this is, after all a Canon forum. You cant deny that Canon have been really good at re-using their 18mp sensor. And I dont know where you have the idea that everybody think that all 18mp sensors are the same, that is news to me. Why should people think that the Nikon D4 sensor is old and worn out? Because it is only 16mp? People that dont like photography may think that mp is an indication of how good a camera is. However, to my knowledge, these people wont know what a D4 is.
I dont know too much about Nikon sensors, other than that their new sensors supposedly are very good, DR wise.
As my prediction about the new sensor in the 7DII, I base that on rumors. We obviously dont know anything, since Canon are keeping their plans secret.
