I have read this thread with interest, I have use Canon cameras the 10 last years
My own feelings is that this is some kind of a wish list.
Where can I find some hard facts about what is going on with Canon and theirs new sensor technology or are the using the same old technology but improved as good as it get?

CanonRumors is the best place, really. Anything with a CR2 is pretty good information. The only time you will get better information is when CR starts posting CR3 rated rumors, which are, for all intents and purposes, fact.
Thanks a lot
you tell me that this forum is the best place , but no one have answerered my question, is this a wish list or is it a reality when it comes to Canons sensors? 24Mp at a APS size and what is the signal noise ratio with current technology and the dynamic range compared to others
If I had to guess where the information came from, I would say that, assuming an Aug. 2013 release date is legit, it is one of probably several potential specs, based off of a prototype someone has been using in the field. Whether these are the specs that actually end up in the retail version, no one can say...not until someone actually has a legit retail version in their hands or breaks and NDA.
I wouldn't necessarily say this is just a wish list. If it was CR0/1, definitely a wish list, but since it is a CR2, it could be legitimate information based on pre-release spec sheets, a closed-room session a known source had with canon reps, information based on a prototype version out in the field (potentially second-hand, so the information could be a bit more sketchy if that's the case), etc.
I wouldn't go around stating these specifications as fact, but I wouldn't simply discount them off-hand either. It's a rumor, and its a pretty decent one...the best we have at the moment.
As for the sensor's ISO range, noise quality, dynamic range, etc....no real solid rumors on that yet, so no one can really say. If the sensor is fabricated on Canon's past 500nm process, I wouldn't get my hopes up all that much. You can only push a process so far before you hit a brick wall. I am not really sure what value a 24mp APS-C sensor would have on a 500nm process...the circuitry would consume so much die space relative to the photodiode itself, I can't imagine such a sensor would perform very well in any context. With a 180nm process, that cuts the transistor size down to nearly 1/3rd, leaving you with far more room to dedicate to the photodiode, making APS-C sensors with pixels smaller than 4 microns more realistic.
