Rumors.  Do you understand that?   ::)

If you needed 36 MP FF, you'd be shooting with a D800 now, anyway...right?

Why is Canon dragging their feet?

They too busy making more 24-70ish lenses and "IS" primes for video shooters

I'm standing by for new Fuji X-E2 and Sony FF mirrorless bodies. I like to build a small landscape system, therefore, I don't mind higher MP in this case. Just keep the bodies and lenses small as possible. Canon 22mm is perfect ;)

Yes...I agree.

Nikon launched their 36 MP 18 months ago...Canon dragging their feet indeed.

Maybe they'll make up for it with a 46MP?

By that logic, I don't need anything that I don't already have. That's a simplistic statement.

That's a simplistic statement.

This whole thread is a simplistic topic.  A rumor that Sony will have a 36 MP FF sensor.  There are rumors that Canon will have a 40+ MP FF sensor.  Let's talk when something is announced, until then it's just wasted electrons.

I'm waiting for the 75mp camera from Canon, everything else is just for amateurs. Once I get that, I can FINALLY take the special shots that are locked away in my mind that none of my current sad gear can achieve. Oh I can't wait for that day.

No more so than the concept:

megapixels => camera/image/photo quality

Fighting simplistic statements with simplistic statements is a good way to dumb down a discussion and make this forum much less interesting.

+1 for me too, Dear Teacher, Mr. neuroanatomist.
Canon  invented  100 MP.  Sensor 2-3 years ago and This years, My dear Japanese friend , Optical Engineer , who work at Canon, Japan tell me that the High MP. ( 200-300 MP + )   are not matter any more, Yes, The New technology is here. BUT the cost of new camera that Canon will put in the market  must be under $ 10,000 US Dollars , to sell the most , and make the most money for the Canon Company. Yes, They  rather want to sell  250,000 Units of new camera bodies under $ 8,000 US Dollars, than 1000 units of $ 25,000 Us Dollars, just for the real Pro or the Super rich Photographers( ??) , who just point and shoot, and show off their new toy.
Have a great day, Sir.

I don't understand. It's a chronic condition -- and not always intolerable.

The best time to buy a camera is about 3 years from now.  ;D
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Surapon,
Does your Canon engineer friend ever give you any more "secret information" that you can share with your other friends here at CR ;D:-X P.S., I always enjoy reading your posts, and admire your politeness, which is something I could improve on myself.

PS, sorry distant.star and Surapon, I quoted the wrong post,  :-[ :-[though I like yours also distant.star

While I wholeheartedly get your point, Neuro. The FF Sony camera rumored here is most likely going to be announced in about 10 days. I trust Andrea over at sonyalpharumors and I'm pretty sure there is at the very least going to be one FF Sony mirrorless, if not two by the end of the year. while it is all rumors at this point, Canon has certainly been dragging their feet on releasing new technology and new features people are looking for while pricing new products at a premium level. I would say this includes things like the 24-70 w/ no IS, 6D w/ only 11AF points. similar sensors again and again and a 5DIII at 500 dollars more than the D800.
While it is all rumors at this point, there is a very good chance that Sony will have a sub 2000 dollar Leica sized FF interchangeable lens camera on the shelf in a couple months. While I am super excited about this, I am a little disappointed it has taken this long as I have been waiting for something like this since the M9 was first released. I was hoping for a FF ILC in a smaller than DSLR size for years, and was first thinking it would be Fuji after the Xpro and the same when Nikon and Canon both announced their mirrorless offerings(Nikon 1 and EOS M.) While I'm sure everyone will have many logical reasons why Canon is correct(they're a billion dollar company and doing great business afterall,) I think we would all like faster advancements in technology and design. So yes, I would say Bravo to Sony for making* something small, FF and with interchangeable lenses, especially at a $2000(or less if the rumors are right) price! and yes, I wish Canon, and all the other companies, would quit dragging their heels and release some innovative products!

* please forget the fact that the Sony camera is not even announced yet. If tempted to think of a critical reply, please think of the RX1 first.

I guess I don't understand.
Are we only supposed to speculate and talk about Canon Rumors, and only talk about Nikon and Sony products released on the market.
Or is it that it is a waste of time complaining that Canon's Rumors about a FF mirrorless are behind Sony and Nikons rumors.

I am confused now about which rumors we can spread and which we can't.
