This makes the most sense in applications where the sensor is incredibly expensive and the aperture array can be made more cheaply.
I could imagine some applications in doing high speed optical data transmissions where there are multiple end-points.
An impressive 5 Fn buttons? Aargh! These things are more a curse than a blessing. Who can honestly remember which function was allocated to which button? And what you changed it to last?I would be much more impressed with less Fn buttons - just put the things that are needed onto well marked buttons and the rest of the stuff into the menus. An Fn button is effectively just a badly marked button IMHO.
Really hoping that camera manufacturers can get over this "Fn button" thing. It is stupid - it eventually just becomes a button that you aren't really sure what you last set it to. I would much rather have all the buttons do something useful and marked accordingly. Usage testing should easily determine what the majority of users want/need and the least used functions can be relegated to the menus for occasional use.
Now, with connected cameras, manufacturers should be able to automate the collection of button usage data!
As long as it takes NiMH and similar 1.2V rechargeable AA's and treats them properly - that is the biggest fault with its competitors like the Canon SX150 - they all seem to view a 1.2V rechargeable as a very flat 1.5V Lithium.
Great to have video review - really helps with appreciation of how it handles. It would be better if the camera was turned on and pointed at a scene and then a photo taken - to see and hear the actual operation of the machine. A long boring exploration of features would not be great, but an expose of the most innovative features and the most annoying would go a long way towards making a decision for the potential buyer/user.
