Sony Sensor Developments

Hi,

Did anyone else notice the sensor features in Sony's new A6000 MILC? This is a 24mpx APSC upgrade to their NEX6 camera, except that they've dropped the name NEX - it's in a similar RF style but now they're all just Alphas. That doesn't have nuch to do with Pentax except that it might signify what the future holds in sensor possibilities. The A6000 has hybrid AF delivered by 179 points that cover 90% of the sensor, and is claimed to achieve 11fps tracking AF.

That's quite something, if it's borne out. I wonder if that's a standard that will make its way into sensors that become available for sale to manufacturers like Pentax.

Regards, Rod
