personally, I think it's an excellent idea.

but I think the future is on sensor PDAF. I can imagine that the current Nex7 sensor would lose half of it's pixels and replace those with AF sensors. I don't know if it is possible, but I can imagine this. It will make the sensor a 12MP sensor, but it can be a good compromise for some.


X= Image sensor
O= AF sensor

I don't know if this is even feasible, although I think I read somewhere that this is the technology behind Nikon 1 series.

Hmm...that's interesting DJ, especially if that's true about the Nikon 1's. I could definitely see that happening with the current 24MP sensors, where half of them are actual pixels, and the other half sensors? Though those would be really, REALLY tiny sensors, not sure if they could make them that small, and so evenly spaced to not degrade image quality.
