It is high time that Canon produced a sensor with better resolution, noise and dynamic range than the competition or give up and start buying its sensors from a manufacturer that can.

Depends on what Canon have in the pipeline doesn't it?

Of course, but it also depends on how long that "pipeline" is...

What you may feel is 'high time' probably isn't at all from a business point of view. And should Canon come out with model/s with a new sensor at, say, Photokina, how many of you would still think that just buying a sensor from another manufacturer would be a good idea?

If Canon was to come out with a worthy successor to the 7D by September, then I would not think of changing.  However going by recent history, that is a very big "if".
