    Check this link guys, was also posted on DPR but the most notable impressive specs of the new sensor are:

    - Vast Improvement in Picture Quality (DR and Lower noise) with 1.9 times the saturation signal level
    - Larger pixel (1.85 ┬Ám) size + better light collecting characteristics have vastly increased incident light angle (oblique angles) characteristics
    - Offers greater optical design freedom and can cope with brighter lenses and high power zoom lenses
    - High speed with 12.40M-pixel imaging at approx. 35 frame/s
    - reduce power consumption by about 34%
    - 4K and Many Other Shooting Modes

    Can't wait to see how its implemented in XZ-2 and P7700

    Sounds promising for the possibility of making our fast lenses smaller.
