Canon MF coming?

The football world cup is starting in a couple of weeks, so we should be able to put an end to this debate.

Keep your eyes on the touchline instead of the game and secrets may be revealed. If no details, then at least there will be plenty of stories on the internet of what people thought they saw, or claim that they have been told.

By the way, my prediction is England will go out in the semi-finals on penalties (again).

BJL,

It seems that Devils can't win... I agree with most of your points, except for the firs one perhaps.

Cheers,
Bernard

Forget about pixel and formats, the best thing Canon could do to match their MF big brothers is to go to 16bit captures and fix the wide angle dilemma.

A 22MP, 16 bit sensor in a smaller body with one ultra high end wide angle lens will do the trick for me. Do we really need more?

My very feeling as well. I might even consider switching then.

which ultra high end wide angles have caught your attention?  I've been taking a look at the Zeiss 21mm Distagon and the Leica 18mm Elmarit, any others?

It's the Leica 19mm you want not the 18mm.

The Zeiss 21 is king for sharpness edge-to-edge. The Leica 19 is close but not quite as good on the edges but with a little better color but you have to break your mirror to use it on a FF Canon. The Zeiss can fit as is. I own both.

The Leica 28 is possibly the sharpest lens ever made in this range. The Zeiss 28/2.0 (not 2.8) is very close and the Zeiss 35 PC Shift lenses are amazing. I own these too.

The Leica 15/2.8 is the best in its class. I don't own that one, I own the lessor Leica 15/3.5 which is basically the same design as the Zeiss 15/3.5 with possibly different coatings. These aren't as good but they are a good value and more common on the used market.

On point 1, I believe that Canon was already number 1 by the end of the era of FSLRs (Film based SLR's)...

I totally agree. Nikon peaked with their F2AS Photomic. The lead changed when Nikon released that piece of crap F3 at around the same time Canon released the improved, built like a tank, F1n with rotatable high point finder. It was the best camera I ever owned. Give me all the features of that F1 with a 20mp capability and I wouldn't need a girlfriend.
