This was a Canon announcement of a sensor development.  Plan on waiting 3-5 years for production, and then be greatly surprised and happy if it appears in a year.
 
Canon keeps their internal schedules secret, and leaks just don't happen.

TOKYO, Japan, September 12, 2013—Canon Inc. has successfully captured video footage of Yaeyama-hime fireflies flying in darkness, a feat made possible by the high-sensitivity 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor developed by Canon for video capture that was announced in March 2013.

It is a video chip and will appear in a surveillance camera.  Its likely that law enforcement, military, and large research institutions who can swallow a $100K price tag will be the initial market.  But, maybe I'll be surprised and it will only cost a quarter of that.
