===If true, then my next two questions are:
1) What mount?
2) Anything new for the sensor?
In terms of what this would cause on my part as a buyer, that depends. On the surface, I have little use for this camera. I need a high res companion for my 1Dx2, and this isn't it. However, the big brother to come may be.
If Canon can make strides with their sensor, then this camera will be enough to keep me from pairing an a7r3 with my 1Dx2. I won't buy this one, but I'll be ok with waiting for the higher MP one to be released.
On the other hand, if this is basically a 5d4 sensor, then I'll probably just pick up the a7r3.
I think I can help you in figuring what is coming down the road REAL SOON NOW from SOMEONE !!! I'm not saying WHOM or WHEN...I'm just saying look at these near-centre-of-photo crops from images taken at 8192 by 6144 pixel AFTER 4:2:2 8-bit normal in-camera-based DCT-based JPEG compression has been applied. (i.e. these are NOT it's much higher visual quality 4:4:4 JPEG-2000 Wavelet photos!) ... I Think I can say on these images, the noise floor and colour-rendition are such that EVEN WITH DCT JPEG IMAGE COMPRESSION that any problems are now an issue with manual operator-focusing and higher end lenses being needed and NOT the camera itself.
So what is coming DOWN the road very very soon now is 60 fps DCI 8k video and 120 fps DCI 4k/5k video using interframe and intraframe codecs at multiple aspect ratios. The photo size is 50 megapixel stills at a burst rate of 25 fps. Sensor sites are 6+ micron for low noise floor. You get FANTASTIC user-selectable DCT JPEG and Wavelet JPEG-2000 8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit, 14-bit and 16-bit compressed still photos and video at user-selectable bit-rates! FULL RAW and 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1 RAW 4:4:4 and JPEG-2000 4:4:4/4:2:2 colour sampling ...... COMING REAL SOON NOW !!!
Now take it as you see it! These are UNRESAMPLED direct centre-crops (i.e. NOT Bicubic or Lanczos-3 resampled!) taken from an 8k by 6k image at 8-bit DCT JPEG --- I Rest My Case !!! These PNG-format saved images now allow you to PROPERLY see the ORIGINAL 8-bit 4:2:2 JPEG artifacts unheeded by any given image editor representation. This means the noise and compression artificts even at the lower quality settings (saves space) is MUCH REDUCED over almost ANY current camera out there. Colour is very good especially on the flowers. I wish I could show you the full size 8k x 6k pixel 16-bit FULL RAW and JPEG-2000 4:4:4 images ....BUT I CAN'T ....YET!
AND............YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST !!!
