The Lens Camera ....

Interesting concept. Create a camera with no body, just a lens and a sensor. Make those two parts a 20.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and an f/1.8 Carl Zeiss lens with 3.6X optical zoom. Allow it to physically and wirelessly connect to smartphones. Presto, a a DSLR-like quality camera.

Well, that's what SONY's betting on. I think it's a good bet.

First Impressions from The Phoblographer

"The Sony QX10 and QX100 lenses with sensors built in are indeed real–and they totally connect to your mobile device. The QX10 and QX100 have a very specific naming for really good reasons. For the most part, the QX10 is a small sensor unit with a long zoom range while the QX100 is a larger sensor unit that is akin to the company’s RX100 camera. So just imagine it: the excellent photo shooting capabilities of the RX100 and your phone–connected together in true harmony via Wifi or NFC.Your Instagram is about to get a heck of alot better."
