CANON GOES 24x36 SENSOR FOR PRO SLRS, APS FOR AMATEUR:
Canon identified better saturation, greater ISO range, easier use of wide-angle lenses, and less noise as some of the reasons for preferring 24x36mm CMOS sensors for pro cameras. Canon predicted the cost of such sensors might drop slightly, but would remain sufficiently high to put them out of amateur range, where APS-size sensors would continue to rule. Aside from some special wide-angle lenses, Canon doesn't expect to field an entire range of APS-dedicated lenses. Instead, Canon thinks digital camera owners will continue to use the standard array of Canon lenses, present and future.
