Well, almost two months ago when an anonymous source told me Sony would release a half a million ISO camera I didn’t believe him and missed to report about it on SAR. I guess I have to post more SR2 ranked rumors in future because as I learned some of them actually become truth :)
So here is one of these SR2 rumors I received in these days:
“I received some information directly from Sony that the RX2 with curved sensor will likely be released this summer”
As you know Sony patented such a sensor for a Full Frame camera and they also patented the 35mm f/1.8 lens designed specifically for a curved sensor camera:
So I guess this is more than just an “impossible” rumor. This would become the worldwide first consumer digital camera with such a sensor! The benefits are equal sharpness across the Full Frame. Something you don’t get with any lens yet. The lens ould be also become much more compact.
