So, the same old same old 70D sensor?

I am sure the 7d2 will be as good as it can possibly be...everything will work well & smoothly with more refinement & accuracy etc etc just like my 6d and also the 5d3 just feels so much better than my old5d2. But it seems that it will no longer have the best image qualitya t any iso (yes/no?) nor frames per second, nor features, nor almost anything one can think off...what it has going for it is a bunch of mostly very good lenses. But from all I have read Samsung also makes good lenses. It is going to be a while before they will become mainstream, but it sure looks like they left the starting blocks with a bang! It remains to be seen if Canon will pick up the challenge or just continue in their, so far very good, ways, but just not cutting edge anymore like in the days of the 5d and 5d2.....
Anything more than $550 isn't worth the money. Better value on the RX100 II or III.
The 5D MK III had so much more detail and much sharper than the 70D.
Or otherwise use a 1" sensor and make the damn thing smaller, rather than waiting more than 2 years until they finally come up with a response to the Sony RX-100.
The lack of a touchscreen in a camera with dual pixel AF seems really weird. They're killing half the point of the feature.
The video on this seems to be lacking as well, when compared to the Sony RX100 Mark III.
For Canon users, the main advantage to not buying Sony as a pocketable camera, is the menu system. I guess Canon uses a similar system on these smaller cameras as they do on their DSLRs?
I'm not a fan of these things being labled 1" Sensors... I hope everyone considering this thing is aware it's much smaller than an inch and only around 15.9mm measured diagonally!
Go buy an EOS M instead
well, no winner. too late. Should have come out with that thing 2 years ago instead of stupid Powershot S 100/110/120 and instead of also stupid G1 X/II
Judged from the G1X II debacle the sensor will be underwhelming i guess.
Different brushes for different paintings. My stance is this. Canon already excels at everything else. They alrady have a phenomenal AF system. They already have some of the best frame rates in the business. They already have the better frame buffer handling (Canons just keep on going, and going, and going, and going, while Nikons usually stop dead), etc. Canon already excels at everything else. They even excel at customer support...it's truly second to none, worldwide. So where could they give photographers the single greatest gains? Sensor IQ. It's the only thing they are behind on...and the realities of how far behind the competition they are only become more and more apparent each time a new camera is released (from anyone, not just Canon).
It's not a matter of having a closed mind. It's a simple matter of logic. It is completely illogical for them to create another 20.2mp sensor, if they have moved to a radically different fabrication process. Smaller transistors would allow them to do so much more with a much higher resolution sensor. It just makes no sense.
The other rumor was still just that...a rumor. Was it even more than a CR1?
