On Nokia's 41MP Lumia 1020 looks impressive post (227 comments in total)

41MP is currently a feature that allows moderate zooming with a smartphone at good light. Not more and not less than that. Take it or leave it.

With the OIS of the 1020 it should be possible to get better zoomed videos and many low light shots should also become better.

OK, after a while I really feel challenged once again to put things on the internet right by myself:) I have had the 808 for a while now so this is my experience:

1) At wide angle very good IQ in good and in low light, comparable or better than all others smartphones (due to downsampling).
2) (Moderate) zooming at good light is a great and extremly usefull feature and the IQ is still absolutely on par with all other smartphones
3) Zoomed low light images have limited IQ. Period. Unfortunately.
4) Video recording is better than all other smartphones because of the sound quality and zoomability.
5) OIS is missing and would surely improve zoomed video.
6) OIS would help at still images in many occasions at low light. Of course not when shooting (most) moving subjects.

Discussions about 41 MP have no sense. (BTW, yes you can capture full 41MP with some special apps that use the whole sensor, not cropping to 4 :3 or 16:9 ratio)

duqov: Can somebody point me to a website/formula where I could calculate which aperture I need if I want: 1) 1/2.3 sensor, 2) equivalent of 85mm FF view angle and 3) equivalent of 85mm FF, f=2.0 depth of field? Would it be about f=0.2? How big would such glass be? Still smaller than FF 85mm f=2.0 Why is nobody making such things?

As a Nokia 808 owner I am convinced that with small sensors inevitably getting better, things like that will surely become the future.
