  • Brand new 24.1MP back-illuminad stacked CMOS sensor
  • DIGIX X image processor
  • 30fps blackout free shooting with full AF/AE tracking

This body certainly looks impressive and although it’s way out of my price range, it’s promising for the future Canon bodies to be released. It’s probably too early to speculate but if all the advancements from this body in terms of stacked sensor and electronic shutter improvements can trickle its way down to the 5 and 6 series bodies.
