Indeed , very good for a very specific application; but not versatile.

I hope they show us a cross section of Theta S so we can see how the folded optics design works.

Claims to have larger sensors - 1/2.3. Does anyone know the size of the previous generation sensors?

Based on my experience, I think we'll need a sensor with the performance of the Q7/Q-S1 1/1.7 to take a big step in IQ, but we'll have to wait and see the first reviews.
