Um.. I would be comfortable is betting alot that Canon will not make use of a sensor from a company owned by Sigma.
They may patent and distribute their own version at some point.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
I can confirm that DPP 4.0.0 does not support 7D CR2 But it can be installed in parallel with DPP 3.14.15 that still supports it.
I know if I don't order one of these, a few weeks later the new high-MP FF body with killer AF and DR will be released for way more $ and I'll regret not buying this 1DX deal till the cows come home.
I hate to be wrong, good thing it doesn't happen often.
You are probably right, but then again there are many people like me who don't really care about "high-ISO" performance and are instead always griping about the lack of 50 ASA and ... ... 25 ASA equivalent. Plus it now seems that even 100 ASA/ISO is biting the dust.
The question is why has Canon not released a 36MP'ish FF camera when both Nikon and Sony have done it.
So, if according to you, the ability of the processor(s) to handle the data is not the issue, then what is the excuse? Crummy lenses without the resolving power? No. Slow SD and CF cards? No. Inability to actually make such sensors? No. What then?
Or has Canon simply decided that absolutely no photographer actually needs 36MP in a FF package?
To those chucking Moore's Law around ... yes, possibly the DiG!C architecture can handle the data, but at what cost in terms of power consumption and thermal management? Both these factors can negatively impact on the actual use of the chips ... which leads to the same conclusion.
