Are there any engineers out there who understand and can explain sensor technology?

Yes but you're not looking for a engineer, you're looking for a magician, able to "explain sensor technology" out of thin air, without even looking at pictures... that's a different thing.

LOL! Exactly.

Until Chipworks or someone else puts the 70D sensor under a microscope (they literally do this), no one can tell what Canon has done with this sensor.

I'm actually expecting some real sensor improvements this time around.

The new 20mp sensor should be able to match the D7100 sensor in performance.
Sans DR, of course, which Canon cannot 'fix' as long as they keep using their existing/outdated CMOS process - and it's very doubtful that the 70D will introduce the awaited brand new CMOS process.

We'll see.
