Re: Microlens change as well...

I read somewhere that the microlenses have been changed to concentrate more light on each pixel but thats hardly a new sensor. I wouldn't expect a big change - not to the same level of high ISO performance of the 16Mp sensor.

But, better than no change at all.

Cheers

There is no reason why ISO cannot mach that of the 16mp sensor, if this is a new tech sensor with greater efficiency, then it can math or beat the 16mp sensor, these are mutually exclusive factors
