Teru Kage: Impressive, but the price is a major barrier. I wonder if Olympus will create a similar non-stabilized version?

At this focal length (and weight too) sensor stabilization not work properly and we need to stabilize the lens too.

At this time of the match who has Nikon lens remains with Nikon. Who has Canon lens (like me) remains with Canon. Who is a mirror-less photographer plays Sony.

Will start with a f/8.0 focal equivalency.

Seems to be a copy of the cheaper Yongnuo that is sold around $60.

Mikael Risedal: Canon are IMO also considering to completely shut down their own sensor division, internal pricing and no modern sensor lines of what I know of, easier to go outside the house and let other do the production with their own Canon specifications

I need to laugh! Just in the moment Canon launched a 4 million ISO sensor? Tell me another joke. Maybe in the entry level cameras this would be partially possible but in the semi-pro and pro level DSRL market not. Canon sensors will make a rebirth after changing the image processor chip from out to in sensor place together with other minor improvements. Then we will see a great improve of ISO base and dynamic range. But we know that cost matter and one should have scale sales to justify producing anything. No one in the market has double pixels sensor. Canon does.

Ruy Penalva: Do we are in the XXI century? A 16 MP sensor sounds like a sub smart phone sensor. If it were only video dedicated may be but a mixed still and video sensor should have more pixels.

More important is photo site square area and other technologies to gather light and process it.

Yes. But remember that a7S is a full frame sensor so each mp is big enough to capture light and have low noise. The choose for 14 MP in a7S was in reason of increasing the photo site area.

Olympus, like Fuji sensor, should be limited by signal to noise ratio. So they keep their sensor at this pixel level.

Please, psamleet, don't fancy me in. This is a free discussion and all opinion are valid, mine included.There are people who are satisfied with a 10 cm pen... but we just know that this length is very small for the majority of the women. So is sensor 14 MP.

Nikon D4s is not a new release and it is mainly for photo-journalism. Here, the speed for sports and photo-journalism limits the sensor size. But remember: Canon next 1Dx will have 24 MP sensor. Regarding Sony A7S, its main reasonable application is video not still.

In reply to:

Ruy Penalva: Keep on Canon/Nikon realm. Most predictable. More realistic. More ergonomic. More lens available. More design. More secret to be revealed. The game is only beginning. Sony disappeared in every field it tried to be a leader, from sound to TV screen passing by cell phone. Would it be successful in photography? How long it will endure the competition before having the tongue out of the mouth?

The problem is not of admiration in itself. I think Sony is great in sensor but can fail in camera. Samsung could overcome Sony hegemony in mirrorless cameras market. Only recently Canon has devoted attention to this market segment and we could see good news from them. Canon has already sold more than 100 million lens abroad and this a good market insertion when we think in ILC. The history shows Sony use to give up when commercial margins are narrow and a big competitor appear.

Xperia is not a commercial success.
