Re: GX8 rumours - 20Mp sensor

I've also read the rumours. Implications are it's a Sony sensor - but Panasonic 'make' their own normally. Commercially it doesn't make sense. Also increased number of photosite for the same surface area will inevitably reduce dynamic range; well size must reduce as a consequence. What's required is an increase in photosite area, not the other way around. M4/3 set a limit, any break through has to come with technology innovation, which will come in due course.
