Re: guesses on sensor sizes in new Alphas?

My guess is that high amateur will be 1.3x because there is no room for more pixels on the 1.5x crop sensor without increasing noise to unbearable levels. The pro model will likely be full frame.

Yes, there is a noticeable difference between 1.3x and 1.5x.

Why not just go to 1.1? Wouldn't they be competing
with Canon and therefore need at least 1.1 to claim "full frame"?
I have the 11-18mm KM I doubt I'll be upgrading to FF
anytime soon. Well, that and the price.


I think many will upgrade to the high amateur model. As full frame come down in price over the years, we will see a migration to full frame.
