I was under the impression from reading here on the forums that the high end Canon DLSR's had a full 35mm sized sensor. I read elsewhere that it has a "crop factor" of 1.3 which would be somewhere between the Nikon at 1.5 and a true 35mm frame at 1.0. Learning this is like a knife in the heart. No, I don't really care about pixels. No, I'm not planning to buy a Canon but I watch the competition between the two companies and I know that, if Canon has it Nikon will have it and vice versa. I'm a wide angle shooter and I'm really disappointed in the digital WA zoom lenses. Apparently the only full 35mm sized sensor was on the Kodak in the early 90's?
