A new sensor! Oh no. What will people whine about now?

No worry, for some folks nothing Canon will ever do will be enough.

well as you may noticed the 650D had a NEW sensor too.
now how well does that worked out?

worse DXO mark then the 550D sensor and the hybrid focus not worth much.

i will be excited when i see the results of this "new" sensor justify it.

That's right!

Canon offers DSLR cameras in whatever color you want -- as long as it's black! Do they still have that silver thing in the low-end?

A new sensor! Oh no. What will people whine about now?

No worry, for some folks nothing Canon will ever do will be enough.

One new lens a week ... two new bodies every month...60 Mp sensor for under $1200...so they can wank on it arguing every day here in the forum ...and some of their laundry needs doing and floors too... Get on it Canon ;)

I hope is actually a new sensor and not more on chip auto focus spots and a stronger AA filter for video that will just rob more IQ from an already dated sensor.

550D 600D 7D 60D 650D share the same sensor, and if the rurmors are valid, 700D and 100D will have 18mp too
where is the evolution on that?

Seems to me that Canon sells the old technology as new, sucking our pockets dry.. so no, its not enough for me!

as i wrote that would be the 650D II sensor.

I think 18 MP is more than enough for 99% of photographers.  I do hope it is a completely different sensor that just happens to also have 18mp... With less low ISO noise, etc.

Seems to me that Canon sells the old technology as new, sucking our pockets dry.. so no, its not enough for me!

Try to keep up, Megapixels aren't everything, in fact I hope Canon sticks to 18mp for APS-C.  After seeing the "evolution" to image quality Sony and Toshiba did with 24mp APS-C sensors image if Canon could apply those advancements to an 18mp one. 

18mp is a nice balance for resolution and diffraction limits (even though at this high resolution diffraction will be barely noticeable), but it's nice to know that every Canon lens isn't diffraction limited wide open (f/5.6 being the slowest stop without diffraction limitations) and I think we can start dreaming of better signal to noise ratios that rival 5D markII with a usable ISO 3200, better Dynamic Range and Cleaner video for Canon APS-C ;D

I just hope Canon doesn't skimp on features like All-I and IPB video codecs, auto ISO limiters or AFMA.

That is the same thing everybody says, and then toss out their cameras whenever a higher MP body comes out. lets stop pretending and accept the fact 18MP is ok when that is the only choice ;) that would be crazy. Having a choice of ANYTHIG but 18 :P

The specs from Monday said that the two new cameras both had hybrid CMOS II sensors (as opposed to I) with a wider focus area than on the 650d.  This has been clear since Monday that it would be a "new" sensor.  I assume that this is designed to address the criticism of the 650d and EOS M sensor that the on-chip phase detection sensors are in a narrow, small area in the middle of the sensor.  I assume that the new sensor will have phase detection sensors in a wider area which will help with focusing on objects that move out of the center of the frame.  In addition, more phase detection spots may help with the speed of the AF which is obviously a huge problem. 
   What is very unclear is if the rest of the sensor will have any improvements.  I have my doubts because it didn't with the 650d.

This is REALLY good stuff!  A new 18MP sensor and the DIGIC 6! New DIGIC means lots of great stuff coming!

It seems that everybody has forgotten about how Nikon the route Nikon went with the D3 and D3S.

Both are 12.1 megapixel sensors, but the D3S's sensor was completely new and significantly better. It was the low-light king until the current generation came out. The native ISO range of the D3S was higher than the D3.

If the rumored specs are true, then the native ISO range for the T5i and 70D are much higher than before (100-25,600). Hopefully this means they greatly improved the low light capabilities.

Everybody is blinded by the megapixel war that's been going on. If Canon can do what Nikon did to the D3S, then I welcome these new cameras with open arms. I for one think that 18mp is more than enough.
