The new Fuji sensor design relies on pixel binning in low light. The
basic objection to pixel binning in general is that same-coloured

same-coloured pixels are adjacent.

Loks like it will have some good uses, but remember, as far as Bayer resolution is concerned, this is still 6MP.

I didn't notice if the two sets can operate at the same sensitivity, which is necessary for traditional "binning". You don't want to add a low sensitivity photosite to a high-sensitivity one for shadow areas, as the low-sensitivity photosite will add far too much noise.
