Sony : 21 stops of dynamic range and base iso of 5120

Sounds too good to be true but this is what the sony a9 might be giving us

Hopefully a Pentax K-something, as well! DR is more important to me than MP - base iso of 5120 sounds a bit funny, tho

21 seems huge when current ones are good for 14-15ev? Seems groundbreaking.

Base ISO 5200??? This is something new.

In ISO 160 - DR is 15, but ISO 5200 - DR is 21...

It's a video sensor...Resolution 2048 * 2160, a bit more than 4 Mpixels.

Well, anything less in a Pentax FF will now be unacceptable!
