EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D, DIGIC 6 & 18mp Sensors

From DPReview early preview:

"The focusing speed of the updated hybrid phase and contrast-detect design remains unchanged, which unfortunately means that it still lags behind current mirrorless cameras from Sony, Olympus and Panasonic."

Well done Canon for the LACK of progress in this critical department. Wow! I am totally floored.

If the MP count has not changed then the underlying technology behind the pixels/sensor has not changed. i.e. there will be no DR/noise improvements over the 60D.

Indeed. I do not see why Canon does not want to take advantage of an improved sensor design to venture into higher pixel count territory. It is after all a chance for them to brag.

well as you may noticed the 650D had a NEW sensor too.
now how well does that worked out?
worse DXO mark then the 550D sensor and the hybrid focus not worth much.

i will be excited when i see the results of this "new" sensor justify it.

+1

Wish list: contrast AF as fast as OM-D, 14 stops low ISO dynamic range and 0.5 stop improvement in high ISO performance.

Reality: perhaps nothing.... I dare not dream any more, having been disappointed by Canon too many times...

Yes, the sensor is important.  No, Canon doesn't make the best sensors from an IQ standpoint.  But until consumers start buying bare silicon sensors to take pictures, what matters is camera performance, not only sensor performance.

I agree actually. Which is why I do not understand all that negativity when people hears about the 18 MP APS-C sensor... again.  ;)

Strange, my D600's files are not greenish at all.

I'm sure they are fine. They just appear greenish on Nikon DSLR LCDs.

But the D600 sensor debris problem is VERY real. :)

no not true, the canon full frame sensors are great and have been for ages, 5Dmk3, 1Dx and 6D all do well with regards to noise

The 5D3 and 6D sensors have lower pixel count and poorer low ISO dynamic range compared to that on D800 and D600 respectively. So, there is no technical advantage whatsoever in Canon cameras. :) So, woe to Canon users.

how about 39 point AF including 9 cross type on the D5200 vs wait for it 9! on the canon  ::)

Oh, I did not realize the D5200 has 39 AF points. :)

I however do not agree the 11 AF points on the D3200 has any advantage whatsoever over the EOS-b. :)

Also, based on the above arguments, practically all Nikon cameras trash their Canon equivalents in terms of sensor performance, AF points and/or pixel count: the D800 vs 5D3, D600 vs 6D, D7100 vs 7D, D5200 vs T5i, D3200 vs EOS-b. Woe to us Canon users. So, why are we still shooting Canon? ;)

That D5200 has an amazing Toshiba APS-C sensor; with excellent Signal to Noise ratios, Dynamic Range and Low Video Moire.

Yes, I am fully aware of the sensor differences: pixel count, low ISO dynamic range etc. But feature wise? I really don't see any feature advantage the D5200 has over the T5i, nor the D3200 over the EOS-b. The T5i has more cross AF sensors and the low weight/size of the EOS-b is nothing to snort at (same weight as OM-D).

My only question is why didn't they just make the EOS-B the new rebel?
The EOS-B has very similar specs to this and is a smaller size. At least if the EOS-B was the new rebel they could say that they changed something and made it smaller, lighter, but with even better performance.
This camera seems to be stuck in no mans land.... not so small, not so cheap, and with totally blah specs. At least I could consider trading my T2i for the EOS-B(which I would never do), this camera offers no good reasons to do so.

The EOS-b is simply the equal of Nikon D3200 (just lower pixel count), but much smaller and lighter. Its weight is nearly the same as the OM-D.

So, T5i goes head to head against Nikon D5200 while EOS-b competes against the D3200. Not bad.

and they both get punched in the face... Hard... and fall over bleeding

How so? Pixel count? Anything else?

If the 100D face detect and contrast AF is anywhere as fast as the OMD, I don't mind getting one to pair with the 35 f/2 IS.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon EF 14 f/2.8 with Flourite
« on: February 25, 2013, 05:35:03 PM »
The 14-24mm f/2.8 is an absolute joke especially compared to the 14-24mm f/2.8 from nikon...

A joke? How can this be when Canon does not even have a 14-24 f/2.8 lens to begin with?

This camera would have a pixel density equal to a 61mp full frame camera, that is far beyond the resolving power of most lenses. I doubt this camera would really come anywhere close to the IQ of the 5DmkIII

Doesn't this answer your own question? :D

Nothing odd about APS-C having more pixels than FF. Happened several years ago when Canon's own compact cameras have more pixels than their APS-C DSLR offerings.

Wah... so much interest in 7D2. Is this interest real? Or is it all web talk? :D

Anyway, I am only curious about the performance of image sensor on 7D2: both in terms of high ISO as well as low ISO. Rumors have it Sony is releasing a 20 MP APS-C camera soon with state-of-the-art dynamic range.

I have already replaced my entire APS-C collection with m43/FF stuff. Only a passing interest for me.
