  1. Pixel size@ ~5.4 micron appears to be somewhere in between existing sony designs bigger than the 36 MP, and smaller than 24 MP. Also some of the sites mention "strong" microlenses giving strange results when used with technical cameras. Something which may have connection with incident ray angle and glass filters in front of the sensor. Common problem with Sony's latest high pixel count photo sensors.
