I think the new sensor will be a marked improvement simply because Canon probably feels like their reputation depends on it, and I think it does. I don't want to debate market share, profit margins or anything else of the sort. Canon needs to release a bad-ass sensor as a matter of pride and reputation, and I think they will. The 7Dll (or whatever they call it) needs to be a significant upgrade from the 70D (a fine camera in its own right). And not just in build quality, auto focus and frame rate, but Image Quality. As an aside, I have been waiting for the 5Dlll to come down to a price level that I'm comfortable with for quite some time. I shoot with a 6D and a 7D and would absolutely love the "all in one" beauty of the mark lll, but I'm just an enthusiast and follow the old adage of putting my money into the glass. Anyway, the 5Dlll is frequently available in the $2600 price range and this is approaching my price range, but I will absolutely wait to see if Canon's new generation of sensors are enough of an upgrade to pay what I consider to be a ridiculous price for. It's just a hobby, right? Well, thanks for listening to my subjective rant.
