Sony's new Z-Shift sensor
Sep 2, 2013

From Sony Alpha Rumors:

What you see here on top is the first image of the brand new ILCE-7000 (European name) or A7000 (US and Japan name). It’s a semi pro E-mount camera that comes with the innovative new Z-shift sensor. The first camera that had this kind of technique was the Contax (here to find on eBay)).

The sensor can move for 18mm inside the camera to allow a perfect focusing with third-party lenses (for example Canon EF and Nikon G). This is Sony’s trojan horse to make it easy for Canon/Nikon lens owners to buy into the Sony system without having to sell their lenses!

I'm mentioning this because Sony and Olympus have a partnership to share certain camera technologies including sensor tech.

Will we see a Z-shift sensor in an Olympus camera next year?

This new camera also includes sensor image stabilization:

The E-mount camera is also the first camera having on sensor image stabilization. Remember the rumor saying the DSLR shaped E-mount camera would have on sensor stabilization? Yep, it was for the A7000 and not for the A3000

Do you think that they used Olympus IBIS tech to create this camera?
