I am tempted myself, I am just being very picky

It certainly will be a very popular camera. Based on the results from CN, read noise at low gain is only 3.35e, full well circa 20,000e and dynamic range about 6000 steps - outstanding results IMO!

I will wait though for the 2nd generation of this camera...

EDIT: Not trying to detour the thread, but I was curious how my camera compares "on paper", so I have just run the same PI script and the results are attached. ICX 814 has half the well depth and significantly lower dynamic range of about 4300 steps, but read noise in ICX814 is still lower - only 2.4e according to this script. Nonetheless, the specs of the new CMOS sensor look very promising, especially at this price.
