Sony is amazing. Wish Canon could catch up to that. Low light low noise. *yum*

Here's one. There was another video I found as well and the results weren't worth the effort.

I'd prefer Canon not rush this one. Its crucial to get it right. They have some serious ground to make up and it needs doing with care..

At this point where they are so far behind it might be better to skip the whole cycle and concentrate on what's next. So Canon puts out a body finally matching what others are doing and in the mean time everyone else sprints ahead. It might be better to look down the road and accelerate those programs and not waste effort trying to match the current market.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Unlike many here, I want as many MP as I can get, but I also want shadow noise to be a thing of the past.

I know, I was just hinting that I'd seen plenty of "High MP Canon body in 2013" posts, and even some rumours for the 5D3 having 30-45MP in 2012.

Definitely agree on the desire for killing the shadow noise issues. High MP would be nice - but I'd prefer the choice - i.e. fix the shadow noise with a new sensor technology, then release something in the mid-20s and mid-30s (or higher) MP range to cover both types of user (ala D600 and D800).

Why do I keep getting the feeling you could add an automatic thread generator for "High MP (or DR) Canon in XXX", where XXX = current year + 1 ;)

+1 on your +1 :lol:

It seems like there is a canned unofficial press release that a new high MP camera from Canon is right around the corner. This news item is then re-released every few months. Sooner or later I guess they'll have to be correct.

(Seems like the same thing for the next version of the 7D and the infamous EF 200-400 1.4x.)

Well at some point they're going to have to release a new crop body that doesn't have the same 18MP sensor they've been using since, what, the release of the 7D?

I love the Canon bodies - the 5D3 is almost perfect in handling for me (barring the bizarre decision to move the zoom functionality vs the 7D), but the sensors are indeed now greatly lacking when you consider that the competition seem to be continually moving forward.

As for the 200-400 1.4x... that's just weird. It's not like it's vapourware (I understand it was made available to select people during the 2012 Olympics - and that the feedback was positive). So, surely they've either got a troubling flaw with it, or having problems producing it in large numbers. Can't think of why else they'd design a high-end lens then just not release it.

I'm guessing it's that. Even if quantities were low, Canon would at least put it out there.

Just did a few searches, and there's talk of a Q2 release (http://www.canonrumors​.com …roduction-to-begin-in-q2/ (external link)), plus the people who've used it (or rather, the prototypes) seem to think it's stunning. Not something my wallet could stretch to though!

Have you seen the results with the AA filter removed from the 5D3? Not as good as one might thinks. :)

I read two articles with this result,.


ie: removing the AA filter is not the panacea some people think it is. How it has become such a "Webmand" is beyond me.

Photos from the D800e are stunning. Fine detail is amazing. If that is the result of having no AA filter, I'm all in.

Of course the sensor and in-camera electronics have to be designed to cope well without it. But others have dropped it with gains in quality so I expect no less of Canon. As I've already commented, Canon are currently lagging behind by some margin which is very odd when for years they led the field.

Not sure why there would have to be any adjustment to the sensor or electronics. The AA filters has a purely optical effect and removing it just lets more un-blurred photons pass. :):) But removing the AA will not solve the issues Canon has at present. It will sharpen up the image in certain cases a tad but it will also increase moire. It will do nothing for pattern noise and DR.
