There have been virtually no noticeable improvements in sensors for the past two generations of anyone's cameras. Why you think that companies can suddenly change the laws of physics is unknown. Sensors are pretty much at their best limit, and have been for far more than two years - and wont change much unless totally different technology is developed.I’m not misrepresenting anything. If you want to make that argument, I’ll make the claim, you’re not seeing the relevant scenario. Two years is plenty of time to either improve the current sensor, design a new sensor, or even purchase a 3rd party sensor. Canon says it’s mirrorless sales are only going to cannibalize their own DSLR sales. You know why? Because no one in their right mind starting from scratch would buy the RP if it has the 6DII sensor. Same reason why no one in the same boat would take 6DII over the A7R. You want new customers? Make a product worth investing in. It’s not the pre-digital age anymore where you can limp in with a lame body. It’s not just about lenses anymore. The market isn’t growing so every company has to fight over the same pie to get a bigger slice. If the company wants to garner new customers, they need a new product. Rehashing two year old sensors isn’t the way. So yes, two years is old.
Plus, we are discussing a budget level FF camera - and yet you somehow think that Canon can afford to put a newly designed top-of-the-line sensor in it. If you are among those that wants Canon's best sensor in a mirrorless camera, then the R is already available.
Your proclamation that "no one in their right mind would buy the RP if it has the 6DII sensor," is not only moronic, but also insulting to those of us will indeed consider buying this camera. Experienced photographers have indeed chosen the 6dII over the Sony A7RIII - not because they are somehow stupid, but because they are not so stupid as to think specs actually tell you what makes a good camera. Some folks value ergonomics, color, the articulating screen, the better touch screen and the overall better AF. Not everyone is stuck on the idea that you have to have the maximum DR, and DR is the be-all and end-all when it comes to IQ. Each person should buy the camera that suits their needs, if the camera doesn''t suit yours, then just say so without all the rediculous and insulting proclamations.
