They cleared the CMOS on the 1d3 to get 10fps. That's 2 frames faster.
I'm worried for Canon, not myself. I don't own a 7D so I don't care.
The 1D3's 10fps doesn't nullify my point, because they're different sensors. Like I said in my previous post, if the 7D's CMOS is already clearing optimally, how is a firmware going to help? A recall of the 7D for this reason would be the worst possible kind, because it's related to the sensor, the most expensive part of the camera.
