New monchrome sony sensors

Recently I got a Sony Roadmap for sensors with rolling shutters and a few prices. There are three large monochrome sensors. IMX411 and IMX461 are already known and available. Single unit prices are about 9000 USD and 7000 USD. The smaller one has a diagonal diameter of 55mm and is still usable for amateur astronomy (50mm correctors are commend and there are also a few larger ones. 36x36mm sensors have a diameter of 52mm)

Around mid of 2019 mass production of the IMX455 with a diagonal of 42mm will start. It has the same pixel architecture and therefore should have similar performance. I got the confirmation that it is backside illuminated.

Because these informations where more or less confidential I removed watermarks from the roadmap and rounded prices.
