The reason for the 22MP is that it works perfectly for binning.
22 MP has some “magical” properties for HD video, as it corresponds exactly to a 3×3 oversampling of the final video resolution. (22 MP, minus crop for 16:9 ratio, divided by 9, equal 1080×1920)
The next “magical” resolution (4×4 oversamping) is at 39 MP.
So they are possibly chasing the video market again.....seems they really don`t care about us landscapers anymore. I have shot with Canon all my life (that is a long time)....it may be time to try something else.
they are for sure chasing video market since that is rumored to have lead to a great bulk of 5D2 sales, that said the 22MP, 7.5fps specs are only CR1 and the crazy measurement of the reticulated archaeopteryxfowl on the 5DX in safari, in the other thread, hints 30MPish more likely than 22MP; 30MP,6fps would seem to step on 1DX toes less too than 22MP, 7.5 fps with 1DX AF since the latter might be good enough for all but the most serious of serious action shooters while the 30MP, 6fps, 7D++ AF would be good enough for fewer of those shooters
but who knows maybe they do bring the fabled 3D with 22MP, truly top AF and 7.5fps instead of the D800 clone plus, maybe they bring one now and the other at the end of the year?
we will see
