    It’s basic ISO levels are 100 to 1600. Given 15Mp crammed into a crop sensor, anything over ISO 3200 is going to be a noise disaster/major detail loss. I commend them for the option to have that boost, but the loss of detail will reduce my ability to use it in larger prints. Marketing at its finest…

    Same size sensor, but more megapizels, not good. 🙁

    Can’t wait to see official specs and what else Canon comes up with to make us drool. A full sensor and more megapixels would have been nice. And maybe it will be. 🙂
