Re: New rumours!

Not half! Why would Canon need to look at something like that? The only reason (surely?) would be if by going to yet another format (not necessarily 4/3) it gets them into the non-pro birders arena, so like APS-C gave them that extra reach over full frame or APS-H (whatever!) then this might be a way of doing that, given that the 7D is supposedly end of life now with no replacement in the road map. Can’t see it myself.

Most patents from the photo gear manufacturers never make it into products. They just go into the patent library.

They could be adding to their 1" sensor.

Do we really want Canon contaminating our purity?
