Seems like SAR has already picked up on the Canon rumours of a new sensor.

I do not know if he was joking, but he says that:

All I can tell you know is that I heard about a 54 Full Frame Megapixel sensor from Sony (with 2460 focusing points (no joke!) and the focusing area covers 78% of the entire sensor). It was actually planed for a 2015 release but maybe Canon will make them change those plans…

 :o

Not sure if it is just very quiet in the rumour website business at the moment, and they have all agreed to throw a little spice into the mix, but it looks like Photokina could be a very interesting show to attend.

1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Dylan...I was wondering, is that why you moved off of the A7R and got the 1DX?  Sorry if I missed the discussion in another thread....

If this rumor proves to be real we might expect to see a 20 megapixel version of the sensor on the 7D II. If they decide to have the same pixel size on both crop and FF that is.

Would make sense to start off with crop versions to have more time perfecting the internal handing of the greater data flow on the FF models to come. And buy some time. They might even do like with the Canon C100. Incorporate hidden tech that will be used on coming models and open it up with a upgrade later on.

Only 2460 focusing points ? If it does not have 2470 points at least it is useless...  ;D ;D ;D

Things are heating up now. A 54MP sensor on any camera is going to be real tempting (as long as it's less than $5,000).

Still have the 7r. The X handles larger lenses better.

OH, BY THE WAY: The number of focusing points has to be ODD in order to have a central one  ::)

You might as well create a poll for that.

Only if the focus points are symmetrical.  For a counterexample, consider three points in a triangle, with a fourth point in the center.  :)
