Excellent idea for smartphones!
mvmv: More autonomy, further they are from camera division. Control over R&D, sales etc. means more R&D for phone sensors, where the profit lies, and less for camera sensors. Also sensor prices for Sony cameras are probably rising to same level as others, resulting less profit.
Hard times coming for Sony camera division.
hmmm... probably 7r2/7s/7s2... sensors R&D and manufacturing expenses have been far greater than actual Sony camera sales could ever cover. Those loses have just been previously buried deep inside of Devices segment. The total results for camera business might be very different to Sony than what Imaging segments result shows up.

vFunct: And why is it always Apple that has to lead the industry in innovation? Why can't other vendors do things like 3D touch, Retina displays, Touch IDs, etc.. All of these were invented by Apple first. How is it that other smartphone vendors are so untalented that they couldn't come up with a single original idea first?
It's honestly shameful how bad these other smartphone vendors are.
"And yes, that does mean an end to the rebadged cameras." We never saw the wooden extra battery grip:(
Horshack: Here are 100% crops of the 5DS vs 5DSR studio shorts with and without sharpening:
Thanks, very informative.
Might be interesting to see how close to medium format 5dsr might get with Zeiss Otus.
Very interesting interview. Sounds like Nikon can't enter in mirrorles FX/DX market. Perhaps Sony/Nikon deal excludes mirrorles sensors to avoid direct confrontation. Sony concentrates on mirrorles and Nikon DSLR market.
67gtonr: What? , why was the Canon EOS EF-M 11-22 IS lens, one of the best UWA lenses on the market, left out of you article???
11-22 is not available in US and also M3 won't be available in US. Perhaps this is the reason for this strange article.
Very good second camera. My favorites are excellent 11-22 and 100 IS.
We never saw the wooden extra battery grip. Well, we have to wait the next Nasa lunar journey. Perhaps with Pentax?
Couscousdelight: I'm not very impressed with the XT1's sensor performances :http://uppix.net/Ir2rfL.jpgThere is less noise, but details are blurred, the Fuji is the only camera where you can't read the paint tube's label. and what append to red & purple tones ?
In high ISO (6400) raw and jpg are practically same.
Reviewer forgot importance of AF. A7r has the worst AF in FF world (- RX1). In conclusion it should had been pointed that camera is not for sport, action or low light.
mvmv: What is the right category, Mid range FF or Semi-professional FF? Text refers Mid range FF 6D/D610 and scoring Semi-professional FF.
Seems to be corrected now;)

RAW and jpg in K50 at ISO 25600 seems to be almost same, if you compare at the back of the cards. RAWjpg?
mvmv: No shadows?
hmmm... perhaps an object at the bottom of box or cylinder might give very deep shadows.
Damian D: Thanks everyone for some excellent comments and feedback.
I just wanted to clarify that the images we [Nokia] have captured thus far and any that you find on the net, were taken using prototype hardware with software which is not yet finalised. This is especially relevant with regards to low light which has not been optimised at all...yet. We are working actively on that area right now. It's extremely interesting to read the opinions relating to noise filtering and detail retention. Thank you.
