A Belgian company Cmosis, designer of the new Leica FF sensor, has a patent with more oval than rounded microlenses to get more light and as a solution for corner problems.

The sony design with the tiled stacked rgb layers seems like an inverted solution for the same problem.

Sony had already a patent for a stacked rgb layer sensor. They presented it a year ago in documents to their shareholders. In that same document Sony stated that their objectives are:

- 4K HD video

- become the world leader in sensor design
