What sort of IQ will it have?
Expect nothing worse than the current 24MP APS-C in Nkon/Sony but hopefully much better.

Yeah, I know, not enough to better the current Phase One IQ backs for medium format. Shucks.

54 MP is way too much for me ... imagine the RAW file size ... 24 MP is plenty good for me.

I don't know about that, there's meant to be a joint announcement with Hasselblad next year as well; could Hassie really be moving to a Sony manufactured CMOS sensor in their MF backs? If it were the same pixel density as this 54MP 35mm sensor, what would that be at 645 -nearly 140MP!!!

Am I the only one who is impressed (read: terrified) by the 2460 focusing points?

My camera has only 61 points! Compared to the 2460 points of this rumored Sony mine is ancient tech.

Mind you, most of the time i just need the central single point and it works pretty well for me!

the 70d has 15 millions focus point more or less, so i am not impressed....2.4k looks ancient to me  ;)

IMO, a large MPixel count is not the problem but the Firmware which will let you choose some reduced resolution modes.

54 / 4 = 13.5 full color megapixel ... in mRAW giving you real 14 bit per channel color depth ...!

Depends on how large those points are. There is only so much area in a 35mm frame to fit AF points. For Sony to fit 2460 of them in the frame, they would have to be very SMALL AF points. Personally, I'd like fewer, but larger, AF points. Thousands is just too many to deal with, to manage.

I suspect in reality this is Sony's competition to Canon's DPAF. Technically speaking, Canon's DPAF allows them to dynamically create focus points anywhere in the frame, simply depending on how they process each pair of pixel halves they read out. They could have 10 million AF points, or 10 AF points, or anything inbetween.
