Interesting interview. Looks like 7D II is in no man's land and 70D is still off "in the future".

I had a slightly different take on the interview. He promised that the 70D was coming, but obviously was not in the position to say when. And full frame is where a lot of people think they want to be eventually. The comment about going with the 1/2.3 sensor as the P&S standard was interesting; makes me wonder what the next G/S series camera sensor will be.

And rumors suggest Canon is getting ready to fire up new sensor fabrication equipment using much thinner etching, almost a given that this is required to increase pixel count. It will also make BSI-CMOS sensors routine for all models. My guess is Canon is frantically working on a sensor that will catch up to or pass the current Sony sensors.

canon has had several or more BSI and also foveon styled patents for a while now.

but yes, I did see a rumor or more that canon has 180nm fabrication up and running.
