This sound more like a G5 X.

QuoteWhy on earth would Canon give up on sensor production and use Sony ? It's clear to me that the 24mpx sensor will be the new baseline, used in the 750D, 750D, M3 & probably the replacement to the SL1 & 1200D.
What's less clear is where the 80D will fit, I'd now expect a cut price 7DII using the same 20mpx sensor.
1200D 24 MegaPixels
750D 24 MegaPixels
760D 24 MegaPixels
80D 20 MegaPixels
7D MkII 20 MegaPixels
That doesn't look tempting to potential upgraders, i'm thinking 24MP+ across the range.
This does not make sense to me.
Canon has just put out the 7D2 sensor, which scaled down to FF gives the 53-56MP wanted.
If Canon wanted to put a Sony Sensor on the High MP FF it would put a cut version (same pixel size) on he 7D2.
Or else the 7D2 would be outdated very soon. Canon waited 5 years to update the 7D. If such a major move was about to happen, they would not leave the 7D in the cold, they could wait some more months.
A FF scaled version of ths 7D2 sensor makes all the sense in this timing, a few months after, to allow better yelds of the larger version.
I don't see any major issues related to bokeh or contrast from these images.
It may not show in carefully arranged and selected official glossy marketing materials ... but it will rear its ugly head in real life - exactly in those situations, when owners of the lens are already most challenged to capture good images.
There is an issue! Otherwise Nikon would never have admitted to it up front and included warning language and images in their 300/4 phase fresnel "brochures" and added (only partially effective) correction functionality to nikon software ...
The big differentiator between 7DII and this new camera will be (beside the AF) the FPS and the size of the buffer. The current Rebel's buffer is speced at 3 raw frames, the reality it is just 2 raw frames. The 7DII buffer is 31 raw. A big difference.
Primes will always beat zooms in light transmission due to fewer optics. There is an advantage to primes that most people don't realize.
Hi,I was expecting this lens to beat the 400mm f/5.6 at 400mm but Bryan says IQ is similar.
That's because they're both very close to "perfect" (diffraction-limited).
Although, it sure looks like the zoom is quite a but better on crop (I know - 7DII versus 60D):
Hmmmmmm...seems the 400mm f/5.6 is sharper...
On full frame, the 400mm f5.6L seem a bit sharper, but on crop, the 100-400 II look sharper. Too bad TDP don't have the test shot of the Tamron 150-600mm for crop camera...
Have a nice day.
I did not know that lenses change sharpness qualities FF vs crop. Hmmmm.
