The 30.4mp sensor (which we haven’t confirmed with certainty) will be “very different than what is found in the EOS 5D Mark IV”.

this stands to reason. Canon's been happily applying for WAY too many advanced sensor patents to not pull a rabbit out of a hat and skip a few EXMOR generations and catch up quickly.

Patents don’t necessarily translate into production, but didn’t they already essentially catch up (5D4)?

No

Please elaborate.

In the rare occasion where Canon comes within 1ev of sony, it still has less detail and sharpness.

Which is determined by your processing settings and the quality of the lenses and has nothing to do with the sensor.... ;D

Which is untrue. Everything takes a part. When you do testing, something I did a lot of, you keep everything you can the same. You can, in addition, try to find software that’s friendlier to a specific manufacturers cameras. You may get slightly better results that way. Often a manufacturer’s own softwRe will take slightly better advantage of the sensor, amplifier and processor than a general purpose package, but all too often, the manufacturer’s software is clumsy to use, and even, as in the case of Nikon, very slow, so that people rarely use it.

In that case, does it matter if the image is slightly better from that rarely used software? Probably not.

What a load of garbage.
