I am curious about the 14-24 f/4 lens. If it does not have a bulbous front element and has decent optical performance, I'm all for it.

Realistically speaking, that would probably mean the 70D sensor, a mediocre AF system, no VF and some little handling changes... :/ come on, Canon, prove me wrong!
Here are some crops of images downloaded from Imaging Resource. We all see things a little differently, I looked at the dark red fabric to see detail.
Why is Canon making a 11-24 f/4 lens? What segment, issue, reason, gap would make this light up to Canon's marketers as an opportunity to them?
Regarding Sensorgen.info data, he regenerated it all recently. After the site went down, a lot more data was brought over. I think there is a bug in whatever code brings the data over, because some sensors have wild read noise values and several hundred percent Q.E. I don't believe any of those numbers are valid...I think they are flukes generated by a buggy algorithm.
Higher Q.E. means more photons are collected in a given time span.
it's giving me sweats (and nightmares of my old 7DI, which was a victim of the melted-hay syndrome, even after 4 replacements from Canon Irvine).
I'm not seeing the classic melted hay 7D look on my 70D as much. My hope is the 7D2 will be the same.
Sony know that F/2.8 glass would be too large to balance with the A7 cameras, it might also have issues with the mount size.
A more valid comparison would be to test them on the same Sony mirrorless body after assuring that none of the adapters used were defective.
I don't shoot sports, portraits, wildlife and landscapes.
I just want to clarify, I retook some photos using the single AF point, same results, 1-2 out of 3 photos were out of focus.
