On Canon EOS C300 launch: Interview with Larry Thorpe article (39 comments in total)

This camera sounds good, but the sensor is just a hair bigger than the canon 7D, so all your L series expensive glass now have a crop factor of 1.5 or so. That 16-35mm zoom is no longer wide enough to give you a stunning interior or a nice wide shot in tight quarters. Yes, it has all the nice outputs and inputs you need for professional work, but it suffers from the size of the sensor. Much like the Panasonic 100 with the 4/3" sensor the lenses don't translate as you wish.
You will find using Ef-s lenses may help especially for wide shots.
The other issue is it is only 1920x1080, where as some of it's competition has a higher capture or records in higher quality.
I still prefer the look of the Canon 5 Mark III.
