It shouldn't take that long to develop something like that. Like I said earlier, by the time the 80D comes out (assuming Canon sticks to the usual release schedule), there would have been at least half a decade where they made no practical improvements in their sensors. Even with the 80D, Canon may end up making no improvements at all. If so, then that would be even more disappointing.
That isn't really fair, the sensor is actually quite amazing considering what they have done with it to revolutionize the AF framework without harming the existing ISO, DR, and shadow processing. It is a brand spanking new sensor design, and also with their latest patent filing here in August, there could be some interesting things in the works for DR and shadow processing.
