Wow. With that resolution, & a viewfinder, this suddenly makes the CSC a very serious piece of kit. It remains to be seen what the resolution is though, & how well it works.

These days Sony tends to do everything right about digital cameras, EXCEPT for the megapixel countSad . What is the point of having 24MP ? Not everyone is going to print a photo of 8 feet x 10 feet. Even a primary school boy can tell you that the image quality is going to suffer, and would be worse than a photo shot with a camera with 10MP on an APS-C size sensor.

The days where the consuming public can be sheepishly or moronically conned into believing More is Better for MP count are certainly over! Sony, please go back to the basics! Besides, reducing the MP count will drastically lower the cost of the camera too! That simple.

Otherwise, this is a fantastic camera

fotubug999 may be right, however Sony is undoubtedly ahead of the game with [APS] sensors, based on the current 16.2MP unit which is being used quite a lot, also by other companies, so lets give them the benefit of the doubt for now, but regardless of image quality, I have to completely agree that for a CSC 24MP is over the top. The native image size for this sensor will be 20 inches by 13.33 inches at 3x2 ratio based on 300ppi.

I wish also that the manufacturers of these premium compacts would make some faster zoom lenses. Many of them are appallingly slow (this also goes for the Olympus micro 4 thirds range) though admittedly there are some lovely fast primes out there. My concern is that with primes, I would end up switching lenses an awful lot and then dust become a real issue.
