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

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

Only if the focus points are symmetrical.  For a counterexample, consider three points in a triangle, with a fourth point in the center.  :)
Technically true but without any purpose. Anyway I still insist in a camera having at least 2470 points (ehhmm 2471  ;D ;D ;D )

In that case, I insist on it being 2473 so that it is also a prime number.

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…


That would be a D4x sensor

.. merely a FF version of the very good crop sensor in the D7100/5300/3300

Seems a bit of a stretch. I wouldn't mind a camera in the 45ish MP range however. But others have said that's definitely not enough focus points!  ;D What are these? Focus points for ants? It needs to be at least 3 times bigger!

My camera has about 16 million focus points and covers 80% of the sensor area.

SAR may be fun to follow , but it is always exaggerating things and always want to generate some meaningless forum fight by using extremely aggressive wording, so I think it is better take it with a grain of salt.

That sort of thing is just completely unnecessary over here, all you have to do is say "7D2" and another 15 page thread pops up.

Or start a new thread about how DxO's latest measurements show Canon's whatever is crap ;)

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:

 :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.

And let me guess...with all those focus points...it still back focusses and misses the target?
