I can't see APS-H returning in the 7D line, I think that for all intents and purposes it is now dead. 

Right.

The killing off of APS-H allows Canon to focus its R&D on two sensor formats - full frame 35mm and APS-C.

Hopefully this should mean better sensors for us as their engineering and manufacturing are able to focus on those two sensor formats instead of three in their DSLRs.

On that note, it would make absolute sense for big-sensor G-series camera to use an APS-C sensor rather than Canon having to come up with yet another new sensor. The only catch there might be the lens size. Thus a "big sensor" G-series may well use a 2x or smaller sensor.

Somebody please explain the fascination with APS-H sensors that some folks seem to have.


- has a crop for the extra apparent reach
- has good low noise
- has good IQ
- has the scope for 25mp+ without compromising the above

The best APS-H body is far better than the best APS-C. So all they have to do is lift the sensor and AF and put it in a (3D) small body and there is a body better than the 7D

Ehhhhh, there are some newer APS-C sensors that are quite close.

On paper, APS-H is better in all the ways mentioned but, is it really so much better as to warrant the increased difficulty and price in manufacturing and sales?

And the loss in focal length?

Indeed but, that's been mentioned previously.

Sure now, the ASP-H is in a better body than the best ASP-C, but that has nothing to do with the sensor and evrything to do with the body...

ASP-C is amazing, and always shall be. It is here to stay, for a while anyway. Though many might naysay the ASP-C, many also naysay the 2x and more crops of the mirrorless cameras; mirrorless cameras are selling like wildfire, despite a smaller sensor!!!

Eh, the APS-H sensor in the latest 1D does outperform the current APS-C sensors Canon has to offer.  Whether or not that translates into better images is an entirely different matter.  Regardless, The sensor and the body make a camera great, or not.

Right. And costs far more than the best APS-C body.

So, if Canon puts an APS-H sensor in the 7DII, is it reasonable to expect that the 7DII will keep the 7D price ???.

just up the 7D mk2's FPS and AF plus possible use different ASPC sensors with the 70D upping megapixels and the 7D mk2 ISO performance.

+1.

The issue that Canon has is that the 1DX is going to be expensive and the 7D is relatively cheap - this leaves them with a huge gap in their product range.

By taking the APS-H sensor and AF  and putting it in a prosumer body and upping the mps then this gap will be filled - and upgrade path for the current 7D users. We are looking at the 3D/6D body here, selling for about $3000 - $4000 dollars.

This in turn would take the pressure off Canon to make huge improvements in the 7D - which otherwise would become the top Canon sports camera if the 1D4 is killed off (as the anti APS-H people are suggesting).

The 7D is a great camera at its price point - but the pros want more and the 1DX falls short from a sports and wildlife perspective due to the loss of the 1.3 crop. Canon needs a model to fight the Nikon D3S - the loss of the APS-H would leave them vulnerable.

Do you think that if the 7DII gets all the upgrades the APS-C lovers want that it will still come in at $1500? And then everyone will start shouting at Canon about the price increases. It will be better for Canon to do a minor refresh (and give it the 7DII tag) at the same price and introduce a more serious pro sports body as an upgrade path

Who wants a 7D mk2 and not a FF 5Dmk3 with more dynamic range?
Would a 21Mpixel 7D with more dynamic range from a better sensor and digic 5 be worthwhile.
New is good, but why would i upgrade from a 60D?
Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.
Giotto tripod, Hoya filters.

I love how some people feel qualified to comment on how one non-existent camera will perform in comparison to another non-existent camera.

Don't assume that FF automatically implies better DR - the Nikon D7000/Pentax K5/Sony sensor has already proven that it's a poor assumption, and I expect Canon to continue that trend.

....perhaps a good thing for Canon? with the 1DX and the 7D mk2 as the AF/FPS focused cameras having some space between them in sensor size and performance would stop one canibalising the others sales.

I'd add that the ideal situation for Canon isnt for 1D users to buy the 1DX or the 7D mk2 but rather the 1DX AND the 7D mk2. A cheaper 7D mk2 with a bigger difference in crop factor would make a much more appealing second body purchase for pro's using 1DX's.

The biggest problem with ASPH on a 7D is always going to be lack of wideangle coverage. The 1D userbase might be ok with this but the 7D's primary market will remain amatures looking for a general purpose body.

Er - no - the 7D would not make a good second body for a 1DX shooter

Please get round that what is NOT being proposed is a 7D with APS-H sensor and AF. What is being proposed is another body with the APS-H sensor which would be a logical upgrade for the 7D user - aimed at the sports shooter.

For wide angle the ff is the way to go as the 14mm beats anything that can be had with APS-C
