I don't think its that quick a process. I'm sure the Sony folks were working on that camera for a year or 18 months and took everyone by surprise. You don't just stick that sensor in an existing camera - there's gotta be a LOT of design work. I'm sure Olympus is already very far along in their development of the XZ2 and, unless they had an inside deal with Sony, I'll be very surprised if it contains a larger sensor like this. Since the GRD5 is probably a year off, maybe Ricoh still has time to do something with it. But for Panasonic, Fuji, Samsung, Canon, etc, I think its gonna take at LEAST another year before we see new compacts with that sensor, probably more like 18-24 months. Too bad - I'd love to see it. But I'm not making any bets.
