18MP on APS-C  looks like it is the limit of their old fab line. They have to be using that line, so they have to schedule mass market cameras there. They might put a lower volume camera on the newer line (they can't put in too much large sensor production, because it eats compact camera sensor production, which can't go on the other line.
Canon have problems to keep up with others who have 5-7 lines for different sensors
I would say that Canon are in trouble with a old line not modern enough to handle  higher resolution with high accuracy  and a new line dedicated for compact sensors but  they are still  buying compact sensors from Sony
a mystery and only Canon knows how they are tackling the problem, so 18 Mp looks  what we can count with for a long time, and no new ideas about raw wise ADC etc

Where are these lines located?  Are you saying a "newer line" might be in a new factory, in a new location?

so much about what a CR2 rating is worth.  ::)

Hmm...only CR3 means "just about fact". A CR2 rumor only means it was a relatively good rumor from a known source. Good rumors are still just rumors. A CR1 means a "take it with a big doze of salt, came from a new/unknown source" type rumor, which are more likely to be wrong than a CR2. Neither CR2 nor CR1 should ever be taken as "This most likely WILL happen"...that honor is only reserved for CR3.

If this had been a CR3, then we would have had to seriously question the rating system, but seeing as it was a CR2, well...it WAS A RUMOR! :P
