Too long to wait.

I'm switching to Nikon  ;D

No, it needs f/8 autofocus, more pixels for more "reach" when focal length limited, flexible video cropping options, and preferably a set of high-speed video modes like pretty much all their compacts have now.

Lee Jay:
If Canon really can come up with a pixel design and readout electronics that dramatically reduces read noise, won't that leave the new 5DIII owners out in the cold?  Could the 5DIII get a big price drop and a replacement (sensor only) be released soon?  Could Canon offer a sensor-only upgrade for them?

A big pixel count sensor would add great flexibility if properly implemented.  I've suggested before several modes:

- Standard mode would be with something like 14MP of full-color pixels each derived from 4 of the small pixels - medium speed.  This is the approach used in the C100.
- High-res mode (all pixels - slow).
- 2x-crop mode - again something like 14MP this time of standard Bayer pixels from the center of the frame (fast).

Before these mirrorless cameras will become even remotely interesting to me, they need three things:

* AF as fast as the Rebel series cameras, including AI servo
* A viewfinder that's got under 25ms of latency
* Battery life for at least 1,500 shots and an hour of non-stop viewfinder use.
If they're going to release a second version of the M, they need a standard zoom lens that retracts inside the body when not in use.

Looking forward to some big mature changes, stabilising the EOS-M range. big pixel and a 7D refresh. Could a EOS-M with a viewfinder and a 7D renaming scheme be one and the same thing?
