I've said it before (...) Sensors are only a shortcoming if you let them be.
Yes, indeed, however, it is still untrue to discount the huge importance of sensor tech for your end result and shooting abilities.
I am not sure what format Canon is using for their RAW files. I guess it's not CR2 because Adobe can't read them. Might be awhile before we learn about the low light performance.
Canon sez t is new sensor tech and something to do with the lenses o the pixels and the way they gather light. Tile will tell
The files can not be read because the codes behind them have not been released. When they are released the converters will get caught up and all will work again. DPP will be your first converter if you are an early adopter.
I am very excited for the AF upgrades, the speed upgrade and hope that the IQ improvements are at least 1 stop better than the original. I have pre ordered already. Hopefully Canon will have a lot in the pipeline for the pre order folks.
