I guess we can expect same kind of WOW effect from low light images the 920 introduced back in days. Why i say this? Well 920 have 1/3.2 inch sensor and f2/.0 aperture. 950/XL have 1/2.4 inch sensor and f/1.9 aperture. There is 3 years between from 920 times and these for sensor technique to improve and add to mix hexa core prosessors and more advanced chipset.
Lumia 1520/930 had same sized sensors like 950/XL but aperture was f/2.4. That was compensated by much improved OIS which allowed crazy long exposure to take amazing low light shot. Now we are in fifth generation OIS which should be even better. Together with large aperture and improved OIS i bet 950/XL takes killer low light images. And even better, video quality should be greatly improved on low light situations too. My 1520 have crazy amount of noise in even lightly dimmed situations and that is just due that small aperture.
And close up shots should show amazing bokeh effects too. It is just so much better to have large aperture if you can't adjust it. Sharpness can be improved by software if that's what you are after. And ofcourse moving object should appear way sharper than before.
My only gripe is that wide angle lens which i have never liked. It just distorts image from sides and looks bit unnatural for me. I would have preferred something like 28mm lens.
Anyways i think we are having a real treat here. :smile:
