This is a stunning development.

Now the technical part of the 4k video is starting to make sense. 4k video's native resolution is 12.6 megapixels! It's a native resolution sensor read with no downsampling!

I think most of you with still-shiny A7 and A7R bodies can sit easy; this is definitely a different camera meant to coexist with your investment without obsolescing it.  It is broadening what the A7 range can do.

There is still no info whether the A6000 OSPDAF will be incorporated. I'm now wondering if it is possible if every sensel is being used natively in the output. Wouldn't interpolation at the same locations introduce obvious artifacts in a moving image?
