I don't know Loz, but with that sort of down sampling the larger pixel size will definitely have some advantages, unfortunately at this stage it is only mentioned for the NEX gear, but if its any good I can't imagine them leaving it off the flagship, that could even be a firmware update you would think?
They are still putting 36Mp in a 35mm sensor though, so they will be on song for the Gear heads.
A lot of the Sony gear seems to be a hybrid of the Canon and Nikon gear, I'm just trying to work out if they are getting the best combination of both or the dregs of each?
The sony lenses seem to be one for one Canon lenses, the range is identical, costs somewhat higher though, not sure if there is an improved quality that comes with it though.
I know what I'll get out of the 70-200mm EF L, not so sure about the Sony, just don't seem to be enough shooters. I should search Flickr I guess, you just don't know what has been done to them before they post it up though.
C&C always welcome
