Canon thinks their sensors are the best...

One thing we know from our own testing is that Canon DSLR sensors can’t quite compete with some modern sensors from Sony in terms of dynamic range. How important to you is developing sensor technology?

We are very focused on getting the best image quality. I’m not sure what measurements you’re looking at but when it comes to dynamic range for example we consider image quality as a whole, from low to high ISO sensitivities and on balance we consider our sensors to be the best.

My ideal camera is one that can take a picture in any environment from complete darkness to the brightest sunshine.

So in your opinion your sensors are currently the best on the market?

Yes. In the EOS 7D Mark II for example the sensor we’ve used is improved compared to the previous generation, especially at high ISO and in shadows. There’s less noise.

So, if you were one of those who said that if Canon didn't fulfill your needs for an Exmor-like chip, you'd leave Canon forever... Now's the time to visit eBay, CL, or FM and post your stuff for sale.  It doesn't appear that Canon believes they actually need to do ANYTHING like that because in their corporate mind, their sensors are the best (which means they think Sony and everyone else needs to catch up to them).

Some good other info in there too.  For instance; "very soon" Canon will release a higher MP body and more mirrorless stuff.
