The problem with Sony is that they primarily focused on the consumer market. Terry Platt (amongst others) regularly try to convey a sense of demand to Sony wrt a larger version of the 694 chip. As Terry puts it, Sony work in quantities of millions so it simply won't interest them until they find a bigger market for it.

fwiw) the shutter on the microline is optional (and arguably redundant with a 694 chip)

It would be an interesting exercise to see how low you could get the noise on this camera by slowing down the digitization and using liquid cooling. For the average imager it would be a waste of effort, but it could be useful, perhaps even ground breaking in one specific niche.
