i'll be really pleased if the 70D and the 7DII have nice clean low iso noise files and good DR as I'll be interested in replacing my 40D for my macro work with either of these bodies.

While this is good news, the caveat here is apparent....a new benchmark....for a crop sensor. I seriously doubt that it'll match or even come close the high Iso performance of the 1DX, 6D or 5DIII.

I'm not really hopping that Canon will improve much on noise and DR.

Probably most of the pictures will be processed through DPP to have it cleaned and ready to show. Also the cameras will have a NR that will make images look soft.

looks like the next generation of sensor fabrication is here.

Good news is that the next full frame cameras will be even more better.

By the way, i hope sony and thoshiba too launch new tech and keep things going in competition. At last, it's us the consumers who are benefited. :)

Hi,
    Just hope Canon don't follow Nikon and Sony to "pre-cooked" the RAW files... I want the RAW files to be as "RAW" as possible.

    Have a nice day.

If 1stop less in RAW ::)...I'll pick one up or maybe 7D II for more reach.

70D or 7D III 3200ISO is same as 5D III 6400ISO, I'm in ;D

From the original Post:
"We’ve received word that the new Canon EOS 70D which is right around the corner will set the benchmark for ISO performance from a crop camera."


... so it will pave the way for a 50 MPix FF sensor with reasonable ISO ... which has a mRAW mode with a 2x2 pixel binning for 12.5 MPix full color files ... just letting my thoughts flow ... would be very interesting ...

There are certain things (quite a few, actually) that really should be done to raw data before they are saved, including hot/dead pixel mapping, correlated double sampling, and ADC calibration.

Is the application chroma NR one of those things?  How about a median blur filter for long exposure shots?  ::)

If the files are truly clean and not doctored to appear clean, then this might make a nice companion to the 5D3. I really like having two bodies, especially when I'm at an event and don't want to swap lenses back and forth. Having a nice, high pixel-density cropper alongside my full frame body gives me a lot of flexibility as well.

After seeing the 70D specs I have real doubts about buying a 6D. Yeah, what Im talking about??? FF sensor!!! Kill me now. But as far as overall performance the 70D just topped my choice of usefull specs vs. 6D, When I travel to NYC to buy my new body the balance is to the crop body for sure :S (If my budget/credit card flunks on the 5DmkIII)

As has been said before, the introduction of the 70D is very exciting, particularly the clues it offers to the upcoming 7D2. Remember, canon said the 7D2 will be "ground breaking", not the 70D.... So whatever happens with the 70D is not " groundbreaking"...

I'm not going to pin too much hope on the "groundbreaking." I suspect that for competitive reasons Canon elected to announce the 70D before the 7DII since Nikon has been dragging their feet on the D300S replacement. I expect the two bodies to share the same sensor.

If this new sensor offers a stop or two improvement in noise and they couple that with a 5DIII-style autofocus, dual card slots, the same or better frame rate, retain the joystick and other controls and beef up the weathersealing, it will be one heck of a camera and they'll get my money.

This is pretty big news. I just hope the hype fits the announcement and we aren't forced into a compromise for the "overall" cleaner files i.e. banding in the shadows at low ISO =P

Why not? APS-C isn't worse than the best 35mm cameras with the best film material we had in the 1990ies - and if you have a good lens arsenal why change everything?
I am really glad with my 600D for movies and the 5.6 400:
  5.6 640 effectively
  5.6 1920 with 3x zoom (one physical pixel = 1 1080p pixel)
With FF? never possible.

The 2.8 100 acts as a 2.8 160mm which his very helpful and the 10-22 ultrawide does a reasonable job. I really prefer to wait for a FF mirrorless (if that will happen) for high resolution/low DOF/reusing my FD lenses and a compact HQ camera and ... use APS-C longer than planned initially.

If ISO 1600 is very clean with the 70D there is no reason to change the sensor format FOR ME.
