sdyue: hold the MP and thus permit higher fps... makes sense for onceonly i wish they offered firmware alternatives to up the fps to older models if shooting at lower MP settings...
Maybe they will... oh wait they want you to spend money, so I doubt it..
Marco 2k7: Lots of people complaining about 18Mp.
More Mpx =/= High quality.
Less Mpx = less noise and that's what matters.
5D MkIII high mpx for studio work will be out in a few months so stop whining.
Your turn nikon.
Btw like someone said before, canon and nikon fights only bring better cameras to us so...those are pretty welcome :D
And let's hope they stay on 14-16 mpx for consumer APS-C cameras. If they keep that resolution, lower the noise and bring top end DSLR technology to prosumer, it would be awesome.
Reading the articles so far, it appears Canon is claiming the new sensor is allowing for less noise, it has a 6.95 pixil size, which is the largest yet according to what I read, and the article claimed that it made for less noise. Long and short they said you will be getting more Mpx at less noise (We'll have to wait and see if that is really true).
itaibachar: Good for Canon!But I'm a bit worried/disappointed about the small area the focus points cover. They're cramped into the center of the frame, very limiting our composition options to a centralized subject.Me not like...:-(
The illustration in the other article may be deceiving on it's relation to the edges. But if not I know I usually set my AF to use center, half press, compose then finish. Except when on the tripod of course. But the layout seems to cover the two "thirds" that you need for composition... We'll see, I want to see this one in action and with people using it in the real world, it looks promising, but only time will tell.
noegd: Nice specs! I'm quite (pleasantly) surprised by the return of CF cards and the inclusion of Gigabi Ethernet after the move to SD and all those WiFi adapters.
CF still has the better write speeds and for the 1D line I believe it never left the CF route...
