So. Year of the lens and year of the camera.
But will it also be year of the sensor?
Canon has not had one of those years since the 5D2.
Indeed. What if it ends up being the same sensor (at least in generation/noise/ISO) as the 70D?
As much as I'd love for there to be a 7DII with a new sensor that leap frogs over the Sony/Nikon competition (heck or just equals it, like DR and read noise), I'm starting lean toward something not too different to the 70D, and people will still spend their money on Canon - the last stragglers yet to give up on a 7DII and getting a 5D3 (where they can afford it).
I mean wouldn't any new sensor built on new manufacturing process be in an EOS-1 first?
