Re: Angled micro-lenses on the sensor edge

Is the angling of the corner micro lenses something new? If so, it means lenses will have a little less vignetting and the lens profiles will need to be updated.

I believe this was introduced with A7R, they advertized the same thing eg. angled microlenses and gapless design the 36 Mpixel FF sensor in A7R.

Not sure how big the effect is in real life with APS-C sized sensor, but in theory you are right this would affect the lens profiles. Also, the gapless design in A7R was said to improve light gathering and low light performance and A7R did beat the A7 in ISO test in dxomark. I'm supposed to get my A6000 in 9th of April and I'm really looking forward on what the sensor and AF can do.
