Sony announces F3 Super 35mm cinema camera with new video CMOS sensor

Sony continues the move towards CMOS as they have announced their first CMOS based super35 video camera with a new CMOS Exmor Super35mm equivalent sensor! The price is high, over 14000 euro for the body only, much higher than the Panasonic M43rds AG-AF100. This camera is of the PL mount persuasion, not NEX/Alpha, not to be confused with the NEX-VG10. Please note this is a sensor made specifically for digital video with pixels that estimated to be in the 12 micron neighborhood.
