20D info about 1Ds?
Aug 20, 2004

If the 20D's noise performance is as good or better than the 1DII, maybe that'll tell us something about the new 1Ds. Paul Pope said is was supposed to be better than the 1DII which made no sense to me because it's pixels are going to be smaller and both sensors were being released less than a year apart.

But the 6.4 micron pixel pitch of the 20D would yield a 20MP full-frame sensor. If that sensor is at least equivalent in noise performance to the 1DII, one could expect the larger pixels on a 14 or 16MP 1Ds to perform even better yet - which would be better than the 1DII.

Make sense?
