Let me understand.  Are you claiming that the various models from Canon have substantially different 18 mp sensors?  If so I suggest you read the DPR camera reviews.  It appears that the image quality - resolution, noise and dynamic range - has not changed.  I do understand there have been some changes.  Data transfer speeds and focusing have changed.

No, I'm not claiming that at all. Canon had a good run with their 18MP sensor across a number of different models. There were subtle improvements between models, but nothing spectacular. What I am suggesting for this next model is that the same MP count does not necessarily imply the same sensor technology. For various reasons, Canon may have completely retooled their sensoe and accompanying logic yet decided to stick with 18MP. Before passing judgment, I'd like to see the details, sample images, specs, etc. rather than simply assuming that because it's 18MP, it must be yet another rewarmed version of their prior 18MP sensor.

BTW, if it does end up being yet another minor mod of their existing sensor, I'll be just as disappointed and concerned as you and others are. Nikon and Sony, among others, are makng some pretty impressive inroads and Canon definitely needs to step it up with their next gen cameras. I'm just not willing to judge them as out of the game until I see something a bit more concrete than a MP count.

Make any sense?
