Sony Sensors are on another level tbh. I hope Canon adapts but it seems like they're quite content with their sensor tech at this point. Not a lot of photographers really care about pushing shadows,

I didn't know that landscape photography was invented just after the Sony Exmor sensor got released... Poor Ansel Adams...

That being said, Canon has been trailing the Sony Exmor sensor for way too long now. It's about time they up their game and release a sensor that crushes the Sony Exmor sensor in every way.

Sure thing, i mean specially in these days where they can take the DNA od that sensor and copy it......
I hope they move on in 2014 for their sake.

Its a Nikon thing pushing shadows that way, I do it but not 5 stops....
I like shadows in a way, or else it looks like HDR, dull and even lighting.

You think "moving on" is something that takes some months or up to a year? Hopefully, Canon has already moved on since a long time ago.

They got the money and more money to come with a solution

Here is a hint - there's something called lead times. Just producing an elecronic device, a company may have lead times of 4-12 months to get components allocated to buy.

Need to design a new sensor? Lots of extra time needed.
Need to build a new fab to produce that sensor? Huge amounts of extra time needed.

While a single person may pick up the wallet and buy what he/she wants more or less instantly, that generally isn't the case of larger companies.

The only way Canon can speed anything up significantly by picking up the wallet is if buying the Sony Exmor sensor. But that wouldn't be good for us. And there are no guarantees that Sony wants to sell. Or even that Sony is allowed to sell - Nikon may have negotiated a contract term that Sony may not sell to Canon...

That is what i was getting to, who care about the cie that makes the sensors, as long as it promotes the sales.....
And that there is a gain in quality, but at what price......

We customers should care a lot about who makes the sensors. Monopoly is the best way to get stagnation.

Right now, Sony is busy thinking about how they can improve the Exmor sensor since they know that Canon will not just still idle. But if Canon buys Exmor sensors, then Sony have no reason to care. Bad for Sony. Bad for Nikon. Bad for Canon. Bad for us. So you really should start to care.

And what did Canon release to close the year? A white Rebel Kiss! :lol::p

Perfect example is that Sony and Zeiss have an agreement for AF lenses.

Which is exactly why Canon should have done something long before now. And that's assuming they are actually doing something, which I have seen no evidence of.

Get of your backside Canon and start thinking about the next generation of sensor, and I don't just mean MP size and ISO speed! Maybe then you will be able to compete with the Nikon 800E?

I'm pretty sure they have done something long before now. But if we assume 3-4 years lead time from decision to financing, agreements, design, factory, trimming etc, then lots of people get the chance to complain that they aren't doing anything.

The problem here is that they can't inform the market until they have a product on the way to the stores, or the sales would tumble.

I'm not a demanding shooter, but I do push the shadows. The question is how many push the shadows to the point where they see banding. My guess is not many. However, if one tends to under-expose or is in a situation where underexposing is a must, banding may be seen sooner, when pushing the shadows. Having said that, this problem may affect more than what I figure.

When I shoot dance competitions, it's a good idea to underexpose 1-2 stops or risk a lot of clipping/blown highlights. So far with my 5d2, in that situation, when I push the shadows, I've yet to see banding. Pulling out the shadows 2 stops is hardly pushing the envelope, but considering these photos are underexposed to begin with, I thought I might see some banding, but no.
