So, I'm now gonna look for... 1D mkIIN and EOS M to replace my 60D.
I'll miss EF-s 60mm macro.

The sensor graded out worse than every other APS-C Canon is currently selling at DxO. While it's just one measure, they are just focusing on the sensor itself, so, there better be some damn impressive processing ability in the camera to shine up that turd.

Are the differences between the APS-C sensor test results at DXO statistically significant?  E.g., 21.8 bits on the SL1 vs. 22 bits on the 7D?  I'd say those differences matter little in real-world shooting.

Also, while the sensor itself may be older, the supporting software packages are not.  The Digic chip and other bits that process the images captured by the sensors have seen significant upgrades, which translate into better images with the same sensor.  For me, it's the image that counts at the end of the day, and I don't particularly care which component gets the job done to make the best image.

blah blah blah at the end, the picture will not be more "beautiful" compared to the old digic chips and old software. maybe a bit more detail in high ISO (a BIT), but that's it.

The sensor in the SL-1 was packaged in a ultra compact configuration, and is really no better if as good as older 18mp sensors.
 
The only reason to use that sensor would be if the 60D were getting thinner, which does not make a lot of sense to me.  Of course, the new sensor package may be designed for Canon's robotic assembly process, in which case we will see all new sensors with a similar style package.

Guys, educate me here quickly.

Is the dynamic range superiority of the D800, exclusively down to the chipset or are there other factors too, like software for example.

I ask this because it seems the Magic Lantern developers are doing some incredible things with older cameras.

My 7D continues to be available for service, and continues to take decent pictures. It will keep fulfilling that role until something comes along to justify the upgrade. Until that time, no sweat from me.

Speaking of the 7D InsanityBeard, can you tell us if the version 2 software improved things like noise at higher ISOs, colour rendition or dynamic range at all?

Thank you

<p><strong>Canon EOS 70D<br />

</strong><a href=\"http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/05/canon-eos-70d-coming-in-july-cr2/\" target=\"_blank\">As expected the next DSLR from Canon will be the EOS 70D</a>. No specs of the camera have leaked out yet, but the last we heard it would utilize the 18mp sensor currently in the Rebel SL1.</p>
<p>The camera will come kitted with either the EF-S 18-55 IS STM or the EF-S 18-135 IS STM. The battery grip will be called the BG-E14</p>
<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>



Any idea when this and the potential new compacts announcements would be?

I cannot answer this I'm afraid, having read some people's stories of the camera locking up or some AF issues (I think) after installing the version 2 firmware, I have not done it myself! The camera continues to operate with the firmware it came out of the box with. Perhaps somebody else can answer your question.....

Well... This rumor does imply "utilize" so I'm hoping for the chance it's nowhere near the same as an SL1 sensor... But hopefully that also means they're focusing harder on upgrading the AF, something we've been waiting for too long.

not 1 person or review could confirm that software update did improve anything regarding IQ/ISO. it's the same.

I was looking forward to something that would keep me from buying a Nikon D7100.

This is not it.

Not really revolutionary then. Wondering how long it takes for real new sensors.
Canon can always open the door and make a visit to Sony, Toshiba, Aptina, Panasonic and start a collaboration, but they are to proud and have invest much prestige in their own sensors

Pride?  I doubt that...just good fiscal sense.  They're selling plenty of dSLRs using their own sensor technology, and all the DxOMark Scores in the world haven't changed that. So, why dilute their profits by giving some of them to another sensor manufacturer?  Clearly, in the case of the many PowerShots that use Sony sensors, they're not 'too proud' - for that market segment, the economies of scale make it logical to source those sensors from another manufacturer.
