Pixels vs Dynamic range and high ISO
Apr 7, 2014

With the a7s Sony has thrown down the challenge.  End the pixel wars and shift the discussion to dynamic range and low light performance.

How many pixels will you give up to get better low light performance and higher dynamic range?  And of course with less pixels the frame rate will rise even further.

And does it also reduce the importance of large apertures?  Do you need larger than f2.8 if you've got much higher usable ISO and dynamic range?

And what will they do with this in the APS-C space?

Also keep in mind that ignoring yields for the moment, the cost of producing any full frame sensor is the same as another.  I.e., a7/r/s sensors should cost the same amount to produce.

This is going to get very interesting!
