Re: Rumours that Sony has made a 32MP MFT sensor

A couple of points :

1. How many lenses have the resolution needed to deliver the detail the sensor is capable of?

2. The latest mobile phones do have > 40MP sensors that are way smaller than a M43 sensor and they end up doing pixel binning (i.e. combining the output from a 2 x 2 matrix of pixels) to try and reduce noise in low light situations. Maybe that's what Oly could do with this sensor, they can market it as 32MP but in effect, it delivers an 8MP image that has more dynamic range.

Who knows.
