The very best outcome for Sony shooters is kick butt competition. I am still sceptical about 8k - but I don't care about video anyway.

The 20 FPS is probably with locked AF - hopefully not.

Indeed, that might be true: the text says 'up to approximately 20 FPS', so we'll see which limitations are in place and whether they actually get to 20 FPS. The same applies to the speed of the mechanical shutter.

On the 8K it says "capturing 8K footage today allows for even higher-quality 4K productions". Just wondering what it will actually mean.

When I read that I thought it might be some sort of up-sampling mode?  5K up-sampled to 8K?
