Pixel density limited ...

There are already problems with 8mp in 1.6 (simply compare 20/30D images with Mk. II) so at this point I'd rather have my ten megapixels spread out a bit more.

Video?

That is not a huge bump in the specs. Will the new camera also have video or something else that would cause the professional photo-journalist or sports shooter to really want to upgrade?

You may want to reconsider

The OP was spot on last August about both the Rebel and the two new lenses. (Funny reading how he was called a clueless troll when he in fact had the info right). I would agree that the specs are not much of a bump but given the track record you might want to rethink ...

I wonder if there is something other than MP that might cause the big news organizations to want to upgrade?

Re: Video?

Two months ago... tsiphoto started a thread that suggested that Canon would offer video from a 1DmkIII...

I find video in a 1DmkIII to be... but then what do I know.

Too true - he is a lot better at predicting things than I am - but it seems a weird upgrade.

I wonder if there is something other than MP that might cause the
big news organizations to want to upgrade?

I hope tgat's right ...

... because then I won't have to have it. 2MP and a slightly faster fps isn't worth the upgrade from my MkII.

he's been right before

This guy doesn't post a lot here but when he does, he's usually right. He called the Rebel XTi accurately before it came out and everyone was calling BS,

we'll see in a week or so

Re: 10mp 10fps 1.3 crop if it is in a smaller body

and weather dealed...like the N I would order right now...put me on the list Canoga....I think the 1.3 crop factor is the way to go...gets the most from the lenses that we have today and why the hell do we need to change the lenses when the crop factor can make what we use today work to it's full capabilities....

The specs will mean a lot if they are in a 5D size body.

The difference is a high-Q AA filter, not lens limitations.

Yeah... but what bidy size ???

10MP doesn't make much sense for pros who already have 8,2 and 12 something... So can we assume that'd be in a 5d size body ?? If so, and if noise is kept donw despite MP bump, I do want one !!! (just for the x 1,3 crop factor though).

Re: 10mp 10fps 1.3 crop

Yay.....no need to upgrade either my 5D or my 1D Mark II. Just exactly who is this camera designed to appeal to?

1D Mark II users? - I don't think so, not for an extra 2MP

5D users? - Nope, not FF and I give up resolution.

30D users? - Price too steep and can't use their EF-S lenses.

No, if this is the camera it will sell because people (eventually) will need to replace their 1D Mark IIs. No other reason I can see.

Especially if there is a sacrifice in high ISO performance compared to the 1DmkIIN. If Canon can keep the noise down with 10MP in a 1.3x body, then a 10MP/10fps 1.3 crop camera is probably Canon's response to what they think Nikon is going to replace the D2Hs with (rumored to be anywhere from 8-10MP/10-10.5fps).

Thanks for looking.

Well if it offered a new sensor technology...

.. as has oft been rumored here, then a step from 8 to 10MP might be very significant. But then that, just like this thread, is only rumor and we don't know what its basis is.

Any word about iso performance?

Will it be better or higher (i.e., iso 6400) ?

I'd really, really guess, Claire, it will be just like the "Mark II". It will take
the exact same batteries the "Mark II" takes, and generally speaking,
all the control buttons will be in the exact same places they are on
the "Mark II".

If there are differences, it will be things like slightly better dynamic
range, even lower noise, ISO 6400, et cetera. And then the faster
fps rate too.
