(SR4) First specs of the curved sensor 2/3 inch sensor camera (or smartphone) with f/1.2 lens!

A couple of weeks I told you how Sony developed a 2/3 inch and a Full Frame curved sensor. Both are ready for production. We now got our hands on the specs of the 2/3 inch sensor camera (or smartphone) that Sony will launch soon at Photokina. It will be the worlds first curved sensor camera/smartphone!
The 22 Megapixel curved sensor has a dynamic range of 10.8 stop at ISO 640, SNR of 41.1DB at ISO 400 and the astonishing 7.83mm lens f/1.2 G lens is only 6mm thick! This could be the smallest and highest quality compact camera ever made. The 2/3 inch curved sensor has the same signal to ratio of the Canon 5dMarkIII !!!
The chances stay very high that Sony will also launch a Full Frame curved sensor camera with a damn compact Zeiss 35mm f/1.8 lens. Will this be the first Full Frame camera that fits in your pocket???
Here are the lens specs of the 2/3 inch camera:

P.s.: I am not sure the equivalent calc of the rable is right…

(SR2) New 400mm f/4.0 lens to come later this year.

Image on top: The current 500mm f/4.0 G lens.

A new source told me that Sony plans to launch a new 400mm f/4.0 A-mount lens by end of this year. No info about pricing and lens design yet!

Oh and please Sony. Make it be a tiny bit cheaper than the $13,000 500mm f/4.0 G lens :)

(SR4) Trusted source A99 and A58 will remain for sale for a longer time.

A trusted source said that even with a possible future new A99II or A58II camera release the A99 and A58 will remain for sale for this year. I have yet no reliable info about the new A-mount cameras that will be announced at Photokina but it’s sure these will use brand new autofocusing systems while the FF A-mount camera sensor may be the same used by the current A7r.
