The rumor is a 4FPS camera with a 36MP Sony Exmor FX sensor using the D7000 pixel design. I hope Canon will compete well with the 5D3, 'cause I can't afford to switch, I like my lenses, and that sensor is pretty much exactly what the doctor ordered (along with Nikon's famous AF).

That's quite a jump in MP - won't that stretch the glass in use whether it's the (rumoured) Nikon or a new Canon?

About 2 or 3 years ago Canon produced a prototype 52 MP aps-h b+w image sensor and Summer 2010 they made a press release about a 120 MP aps-h sensor. 'nuff said.

Just because they can make that kind of sensor doesn't mean they have a lens that out-resolves it. A small but important point
