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.
Wish list: contrast AF as fast as OM-D, 14 stops low ISO dynamic range and 0.5 stop improvement in high ISO performance.
Reality: perhaps nothing.... I dare not dream any more, having been disappointed by Canon too many times...
