Upload & Sell: On
I'm on the fence. I bought a Nikon D7100 for higher quality, low ISO images.
I would have purchased a D610 or D810, but I wasn't ready to sell my Canon glass, especially the 24-70 2.8 II and 70-200 2.8 II.
I also bought a 6D for high ISO event work, at 3200 to 6400 ISO.I don't want to buy (another) 5DIII so late in it's life cycle. I am a bit on the fence on whether to keep the 6D, but I don't think a 7DII will have better high ISO.
20 MP is fine, there is no meaningful difference between that and the 24 MP on the D7100. There is also no real meaningful difference between a 1.5 (Nikon) and a 1.6 (Canon) crop.
I would like Dual Pixel Auto Focus for video. I would like **accurate** auto focus, like the 1DX and 5D3 have, and the 70D and D7100 do not have.
If Canon doesn't release a really new sensor, and no really new 5D4 sensor either by spring, I will buy a Nikon D750 or similar, sell the best Canon glass, and probably buy an 80D or T6i.
I am still hoping that Canon finally gives us a new sensor, with higher base DR. I have no real use for the 70D sensor, which is essentially what I have had in my T4i for 2 years. I'll just buy back my T4i instead ...
I still **hope** that Canon does something to address DR, and also finally brings better/closer to true color like they have on the Cinema line.
These rumors have been pretty tedious and boring. I wish Canon had announced on August 15, as they have in the past. Most of this speculation is pretty thin so far ...
The one thing that gets me hopeful is the rumor in the past that the new sensor would "obsolete" their current line, demanding an update to the 5D3 and 1DX by February. I could see them delaying as long as possible so as not to kill sales on existing product if that were true.
