So what's the point, then? It sounds like there are lots of drawbacks with the only potential advantage being "truer colors."
Does modest low ISO DR mean worse than current Canon sensors, similar to current Canon sensors, or similar to Canon sensors with the potential for a big DR increase given innovative tech/manufacturing?
There is another plus: DXOMark won't be able to grade the new sensor, just like they do not test Fujifilm sensors with their unique RGB layout. So, less DXOMark angst in these forums.
As for DR, high ISO performance and AF speed, no one really knows how these will be affected. But if Canon is confident enough to introduce new sensor technology into their top end body, I am sure all these potential drawbacks have already been addressed. Let's hope we do not see a repeat of the 1D3 AF saga.
