Ben, I would wait and see on the full frame front. Until now, the CMOS onslaught has mostly been fought on the smaller chip front, but the IMX455 looks very promising.

All CMOS chips with on-chip amplifiers suffer from amp glow, itís just that some calibrate out better than others. The Panasonic chip in the 1600 cameras calibrates as perfectly as Iíve seen (not that that counts for much!).

The other advantages to CMOS are the (generally) higher QE and lower read noise. Thermal noise is almost non-existent on the more recent chips.

Then the IMX455 comes in with all of Sonyís recent technological leaps providing deep wells and full 16-bit ADC. All eyes are on this beast
