Nikon just announced the DX (1.5X crop) D7100. Shipping in March.
1. 24.1 Mpx
2. 51 point autofocus
BTW NO antialiseing filter!!
Can the Canon 70D match the specs and price
dayam! kind of makes me wish i never sold all my nikon gear
to answer your question the 70D will go no where near that
it will be a 6D body with the 18MP sensor LOLZZzz
If the 7D2 specs are true, you may never regret that decision.
nah using 5Dmk3s and lenses like the 16-35 f2.8L II and 70-200 f2.8L IS II already make me not regret that decision
The specs of the D7100 definitely don't make me regret going Canon in the first place. With bird photography, the lack of an AA filter would be a disaster. I am also firmly of the belief that the softness with high density Canon sensors like the 18mp is not the fault of Canon's AA filters. When I slap on any one of the Mark II telephotos, all the softness I've experienced with older L-series lenses disappears. The IQ with the newer lenses is unbelievably sharp and clear, which makes me believe the notions of "overly aggressive" AA filters in Canon gear are overblown, and based on a misunderstanding of where that softness comes from.
I have no complaints whatsoever about the IQ when using the newest generation of Canon lenses (although honestly, I don't quite include my EF 16-35 f/2.8 L II in that group...its MTF is good, but not as good as the lenses released over the last couple of years, and I do experience some softness with that lens on my 7D.) I actually hope Canon keeps the AA filters a part of their lineup, and if they ever decide to create a camera without one, that they always make it an OPTIONAL body subtype.
Of course, Nikon currently isn't going through and releasing significantly improved versions of their entire lens lineup....and if they stay that course, if their future generations of cameras start outresolving the lenses enough, they won't ever actually need an AA filter...the lens will tackle the softening of high frequency detail instead.
