Pixel size will still be the same 3.3mu which is not bad. I actually like that size.

QE will be around 90% and that is a big improvement over the 76% of the old sensor.

Where did you get those numbers from?

In summary, could see 1 maybe 2 stop improvement.

Nope. Not gonna happen. A 10% improvement would already be really good, at least in normal mode. It would be interesting if HDR mode could be used. That should improve the highlight recovery quite a lot.

If the quantum efficiency really did improve from 76% to 90%, that would account for almost a half stop. That would indeed be a big deal, but I too would like to know where the numbers come from.

Care to show me a BSI sensor made in the last thee years that has a QE lower than that?
